Dear Library Friends:
We are so excited to welcome you to South Charleston Public Library’s 1000 Books Before Kindergarten challenge in partnership with the national 1000 Books Before Kindergarten program. We know our readers and their families can accomplish this goal!
What are 3 reasons to read 1000 books before kindergarten?
Reading together will help you bond with your child. Create lifelong memories by taking the time to read everyday!
Reading to your child will help them succeed. Numerous studies have shown that reading to your child will improve their vocabulary and make learning to read easier!
Reading together can foster a lifelong love of reading in your child and perhaps in you as well!
How does the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten challenge work?
Sign up online at: http://scplwv.readsquared.com/. If you prefer paper reading logs, you can print them on the website or we can print them for you here at the library.
Read to your child. If you read just one book a day you will have read 1,095 books in just 3 years! Of course, you can always read more each day and finish the program faster.
Track the books you read by logging them online. Remember, if your reader really loves a book and wants to read it again and again, you can log that book multiple times. You can also log books others read to your child (such as books we read in library programs).
Make reading fun by adding a sticker to your progress sheet every 100 books.
Visit the library for a special prize after reading 500 and 1000 books!
If you have any questions, please call us at (304) 744-6561 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Put reading first, with 20 minutes a day spent reading to your children. Make it fun and exciting. Be imaginative.
If you read just 1 book a day, you will have read about 365 books in a year. That is 730 books in two years, and 1,095 books in just three years!
