1000 Books Before Kindergarten: Jump into Reading
An Early Literacy Program
The most effective way to get your child ready to learn is to read to them. The 1000 Books Before Kindergarten program is designed to help parents accomplish this goal. By reading just three stories a day you and your child can read over 1000 books in one year.
Children earn prizes for listening to family members read to them. For every 100 books, children earn a sticker. At 500, they earn an educational toy. At 1000, children earn a paperback book and certificate.
The program is for children ages birth to Kindergarten. Registration begins February 4. More information available at the library.
The program is sponsored by the Oregon Brooklyn Lions Club.
Check out our Storytime Break Activities in April and May.
Oregon Public Library offers weekly early literacy storytimes for babies, toddlers and preschoolers. Storytime is a great place to build early literacy skills through fun short stories, puppets, songs, activities, and crafts.
Information about literacy and other parenting topics can be found on the Parent's Resource Page.
No registration is requested for storytimes.
Storytime ends on April 12 and is on break until June 18. We are hosting a 4-week series of fun, simple programs (movies, crafts, dancing, parachute play, and bubbles) for young children. Storytime Break activities run April 23 - May 17.
