Read 1000 Books B4K Program For Infants, Toddlers and Pre-K Children

1000 BooksThe Lang Memorial Library is proud a proud partner in the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten  Program.


Parents or guardians  simply register their infant, toddler, or  pre-K child at the library’s circulation desk.  You will receive a reading packet including information on why it’s important  to read to your child and a reading log. After each 100 books read,  present  the log to library staff and receive three building blocks as  a prize and an incentive to keep reading.  Upon completion the child will have earned a set of  blocks. 

 First  offered at the Bremen Public Library in Indiana, the program  was the result of inspiration found in Mem Fox’s book, Reading Magic.   It is now the project of a Nevada based non-profit public charity.  Their mission is:

  • to promote reading to newborns, infants, and toddlers
  • to encourage parent and child bonding through reading

For more information contact  children’s program coordinator Miss Gayle or other library staff.
