1,001 Books Before Kindergarten

Congratulations to our newest graduates of the 1,001 Books Before Kindergarten program at the Fox River Valley Public Libraries! 

The 1,001 Books Before Kindergarten program is an early literacy initiative with the purpose of encouraging the community’s littlest book lovers to begin their journey to independent reading.  Children from ages birth to five (kindergarten) can be signed up for this program at either library location, with the goal of reading 1,001 books before their first day of kindergarten.  Our program is self-paced, so it is up to you and your child how long you would like to take in the program.   Throughout these 1,001 books, there are prizes for different milestones (100 books, 250 books, 500 books, 750 books, and 1,001 books).  Finishers of the program will be invited to the next scheduled graduation ceremony. 

Stop into the Dundee Library Youth Department or the Randall Oaks Library to sign your child up for 1,001 Books Before Kindergarten!
