How can you help your child get ready to read before for Kindergarten?

This program encourages you to read 1,000 Books to your child before they start Kindergarten.

Come to any Allegan County public library, pick up your reading log to track the first 100 books, then READ.  You can read from your home collection, borrow books from the library, books read at library storytimes and preschool count too.  Anytime a book is read aloud (even if it is over and over), check it off your list.

After you complete your first 100 books reading log from our library, bring the log to the library, place a sticker on your tracking log at the library and receive a 1,000 Books book bag.

After completing 500 books, your child will receive a coupon for a free cookie from the Wayland Harding’s Market.  Your coupon will be redeemable between the hours of 8AM – 4 PM at the Bakery counter.

When you finish the program – 1,000 books, your child will receive a certificate of completion and a free t-shirt.  There will be a fun photo-op at this time, so bring your phone or camera!
