“1000 Books Before the End of Kindergarten” is open to all families with children from birth through the finish of the kindergarten school year.
An “Old MacDonald’s Farm” binder is available to anyone wishing to be involved in the program. Designed to encourage reading to young children at home by parents, grandparents, siblings, etc., books checked out at the Colby Community Library are recorded when read to the child.
When 100 books are read, parents and children bring the binder back to the library for a farm animal sticker, a small prize/treat, and to pick up another set of pages to record the next 100 books with a certificate of achievement and a book prize awarded when 1000 is reached.
Stop in at the Colby Community Library to register for the program,
pick up a reading binder, and begin a family reading adventure. It is easy and fun!
