Reading to young children is the best way to prepare them for Kindergarten and for lifelong learning. Reading helps build vocabulary and language skills while providing a bonding opportunity. Plus, it’s fun!
Who can participate?
Any child who has not yet entered Kindergarten can sign up for the program.
How can we get started?
100 books - 400 books: sticker each time you reach the next level of 100
500 books: sticker and small prize
600 books - 900 books: sticker each time you reach the next level of 100
1,000 books: sticker and book
Each year all children who reach the goal of reading 1,000 books that year will be invited to a “graduation” party to be held at the Warren County Library Headquarters.
How long will it take to complete the program?
You will complete the program at your own pace. If you read one book per day, you will complete the program in less than three years. If you read three books per day, you will complete the program in less than one year.
