  1000 Books Before Kindergarten
1000 Books Before Kindergarten is a Library program that encourages all families and caregivers to read at least 1000 books with their young children before they enter Kindergarten. Reading to preschool-age children builds vocabulary, language skills, and helps prepare them with the skills they need for Kindergarten.
In as little as 15 minutes a day, families can build the skills for future school and life success.
How does 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten work?
Getting Started - Pick up a free 1000 Books Before Kindergarten Reading Log at Oxford Public Library. Any child aged 0-5 can participate.
Track Your Reading - Each time your child listens to a book, record it in your reading log.
Show Us Your Reading Logs - Each time you and your child reach a milestone bring in your reading log and collect your prize. Read 1,000 books before kindergarten and your child will receive a free book of their very own.
*Thank you to the Oxford Library Friends for helping sponsor this program.*
