1000 Books Before Kindergarten

This is a FREE, self-guided program that encourages you and your child to read 1000 books before he or she starts Kindergarten! For each "100" books listed as read to your child, he or she is eligible to choose a prize from the library to encourage and reward both their efforts and yours!  When the 1000 Books level is reached, your child will receive a T-shirt gift from Prairie Skies Public Library that they may wear to Kindergarten, or we are told...everywhere including for pj's!!

 

We currently have over 100 children and their families reading their way to 1,000 books and their T-shirt prize! If you are interested in learning more or signing up, please contact Deb at 476-3417.

Congratulations to our T-shirt winners!  More coming soon!
