1000 Books Before Kindergarten

1000 Books Before Kindergarten is a free program that encourages you to read 1000 books with your child before they enter school. One of the best ways to encourage learning is to spend time sharing books every day. Reading together helps develop important pre-reading skills that provide a solid foundation which is key to school and learning success. Plus sharing stories together is fun! You can register for the program in the library and keep track of your reading on paper or register on our Beanstack site and keep track online.

To register for youth programs, call the Elm Grove Library at 262-782-6717 or stop by the service desk. For more information, contact Sue Daniels, Youth Services Librarian.
