1000 Books Before Kindergarten


Giraffe Reading a Book

This program is open to CLPL cardholders ages birth-kindergarten. Families keep track of how many books they read on our special reading logs. After every 200 books, come into the library to claim your prize. The deadline to complete the program is when your child enters kindergarten.

    • 400 Books – Ring our library gong, and everyone will clap!
    • 600 Books – Choose a special owl, put your name on it, and hang it on our tree.
    • 800 Books – Tour our Circulation Department and check out your own books behind the main counter. Get a tote bag to carry your books home.
