1000 Books Before Kindergarten Completer Celebration
It’s a celebration at the Library, as fourteen more children complete the1000 Books Before Kindergarten program. The 1000 Books Before Kindergarten Program engages parents and caregivers in a commitment to read 1000 books to their child before the child enters kindergarten. Reading aloud to a child is the single most important activity that can be done to prepare them to learn to read. The program has built-in incentives and allows the parent and child to read at their own pace. 1000 Books Before Kindergarten was established at the Baxter County Library in 2013 and has had 90 children complete the program. Currently there are 420 children enrolled.
All children’s programs are provided at no charge as a service of the Baxter County Library through generous donations and sponsorships. If you would like more information on the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten Program, please inquire at the Children’s Desk at the Library or visit our website www.baxlib.org. The Donald W. Reynolds Library Serving Baxter County is located at 300 Library Hill, Mountain Home, AR.
