Getting Started


Visit the Youth Services desk to register your child and receive a copy of My First Reading Log in which you will be able to keep track of your progress and the titles of books that you and your child read together.

As you and your child reach reading benchmarks, visit the Library to receive fun reading incentives.

Do you need reading suggestions? Ask one of our Youth Services Librarians.

Tumblebooks and Overdrive – eBooks count too!

Siblings can join in the fun too —  be a Super Sibling Reader! Any sibling who reads 50 books to a brother or sister enrolled in 1000 Books Before Kindergarten program will also receive a prize.


This early literacy initiative is made possible through the generous support of The PLAY grant.
