1000 Books Before Kindergarten


Reading to your child is one of the most powerful ways to boost his or her brainpower!

The simple and enjoyable act of sharing books helps your child learn pre-reading skills such as understanding the sounds letters make, developing a bigger vocabulary, and building background knowledge - all important skills that help prepare your child for learning to read and entering kindergarten.

Logan Library's 1000 Books Before Kindergarten program is a fun, exciting, and free way to start your child on the path to success! Any child ages birth to five years can participate.

Begin Now
  1. Record each book you read together by filling in the reading record:
  2. When you complete your first 100 books, bring your reading record to the library. (You will need a new reading record for every 100 books you read.) Turn in your reading record at the check-out desk. You will be given a new reading record and your child will receive a prize and recognition for your accomplishment.
  3. The best prize of all? You will be giving your child a jumpstart to becoming a life-long reader!
  4. If you would like additional early literacy tips and encouragement, please email
