Plano Public Library is joining with 1000 Books Before Kindergarten to encourage parents and caregivers to read aloud to newborns, infants and/or toddlers. Reading regularly to your preschooler helps prepare them for success in kindergarten.
The early literacy goal: Read 1,000 books before your child starts kindergarten! (If you read just one book a night, you will have read 365 books in a year…that’s 1,095 books in 3 years!)
Pick up a reading log at any Plano library, track online using the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten app, or do what works best for you. For every 100 books read, come to the library for a sticker and take a milestone photo. Once you reach 1,000 books, you’ll receive a certificate and free book!
To kick off the program, we’ll be holding special storytimes TODAY, September 1, 2016 at all five locations! Join us for some fun read-alouds, and log your first books toward your reading goal.
The schedule is:
Parr Library @10:00am
Schimelpfenig Library @11:30am
Harrington Library @12pm
Davis Library @2pm
Haggard Library @7pm
