1000 Books Before Kindergarten

Join our reading readiness program designed to expose children to an assortment of classic stories that will help them on their journey to become independent readers! Sign up online or in person at the Youth Reference desk.

The program is ongoing throughout the year, so you may start any time. Periodically, as children accomplish listening milestones they will be invited to special parties at the library to celebrate their achievement!

This program is designed to encourage parents and caregivers to read at least 1,000 books to children from birth to kindergarten.

If you have any questions, please contact the Youth Reference department at children@samuelslibrary.net or 540.635.3153 ext. 106. Follow this link for more information on using Beanstack.
