1000 Books Before Kindergarten

Did you know that reading to your child is one of the most powerful ways to boost his or her brain power? 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.

Santa Rosa County Library System´s 1000 Books Before Kindergarten program is a fun, exciting, and free way to start your child on the path to success! Any child can participate as long as they have not started kindergarten. Visit your local library to sign your child up and receive a welcome folder with everything you need to start the program.
