1,000 Books Before Kindergarten
@ the Northborough Free Library!

On behalf of the 1,000 Books Foundation, we invite you to participate in this free program which encourages you to read 1,000 books to your child before he or she starts kindergarten.

The concept is simple: read to your child!  The goal is to have read 1,000 books (yes, you can repeat books) before your precious one starts kindergarten.

The key is perseverance.  Make it exciting!  Here in Northborough, we have stickers and certificates to keep you and your child motivated. When your child reaches a milestone (every 100 books), visit us in the Children's Room and let us know how much you've read. We are excited to share your enthusiasm for reading and to inspire your continued reading endeavors.  In addition, we will host an annual celebration to recognize you and your child for your hard work!
