The Lester Public Library of Vesper is starting a 1000 Books Before Kindergarten program!
Registration link can be found on bottom of post.
What is it you ask?
The 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program is a nationwide challenge that encourages parents and caregivers to regularly read aloud to their children. By reading just one book a night, families can reach the 1,000-book goal in three years and provide their children essential early literacy skills.
What you need to do:
Sign up at the Lester Public Library of Vesper or find the link on our website/Facebook page for the Google Form to register. Pick up program materials at the library.
2. Track Your Reading:
Fill in a circle or write down each book you read with your child on your reading record or use the free app!
3. Every Book Counts:
Even if your child wants to hear the same book again and again, you can count it each time. You can also count the books your child hears in storytime, in daycare or preschool, or with a friend or family member, as long as your child listens to the entire book.
4. 100-Book Milestones:
Each time you read 100 books, bring your reading record to the library to receive a special reward and have your name placed on the board. Take home a new reading record for your next 100 books.
5. 1,000 Books:
You did it! Come celebrate at the library, see your child’s name placed on the 1,000 Book Wall of Fame, and receive a free book.
6. Keep on Reading:
Don’t stop at 1,000! Keep on reading together; there’s more learning ahead!

Our library was fortunate enough to be one of five recipients of an IEEE Science Kit grant from the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers: Region 4. Through this grant we are able to purchase 6 different kits and 4 games for our patrons to check out, bring home and use. Watch for special programs introducing these kits and get ready to explore!
