    1000 Books Before Kindergarten!

    Can you and your child read 1000 books before they enter Kindergarten? It's not as impossible as it sounds. If you read one book per day, you will reach 1000 books in just three years (read three books per day and it only takes a year)!

    Sign your child (ages 0-kindergarten) up at the Children's Desk and get started!
