1000 Books Before Kindergarten is a free reading program designed for children aged 0-5 years and their families. Developing literacy skills begins at birth through everyday interactions. You play a powerful role in preparing your child for future school success and in becoming a self-confident and motivated learner.
How this program works:
- Register your child, 0-5 years, at GSL Early Childhood Family Education or the Glencoe or Brownton Public Library and receive a reading log to take home.
- Keep track of the books read with your little one.
- (Optional) Return reading log to GSL ECFE/Preschool for a prize after every 100 books are read. GSL ECFE/Preschool will return the reading log to you so you can submit it to the library.
- Return reading log to your public libraries. The GPL and BPL will award prizes after every 100 books read. ** Milestones will be celebrated at a spring event.
