1000 Books Before Kindergarten

1000 Books Before Kindergarten is an exciting program that encourages parents and child interaction and promotes reading through sharing books together. Together with their parent, children who register for this program will read 1000 books before their first day of kindergarten. Infants, toddlers, and preschoolers are eligible to participate by registering at Youth Services. Participants will receive rewards along their reading journey and we will hold a graduation ceremony for those that finish at the end of each school year.

Registration is required.

Zen Shorts

by Jon Muth

Three stories and three children are the elements in this story where Stillwater the panda helps the children navigate life's dilemmas. Thoughtful and creative for even the oldest readers.
