The school year is starting, and we are relaunching our 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten Program! When enrolled in our 1,000 Books program, your child will earn prizes for every 50 books they complete! At 500 books, they receive a stuffed animal, and at 1,000 books, they receive the grand prize!

But what about the parents? We librarians understand that reading to children requires time, patience, and a whole lot of love and care! So to celebrate YOUR incredible accomplishment of reading 1,000 books to your toddler or infant, you will receive a gift card to the place of your choosing upon the program’s completion!

So what are you waiting for? Swing by the library today and sign your child up for the 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten Program!

We invite you to participate in this free program which encourages you to read 1,000 books with your child before he or she starts kindergarten.

The concept is simple, the rewards are priceless. Read a book (any book) to your newborn, infant, and/or toddler. The goal is to have read 1,000 books before your little one starts kindergarten.

The Wauseon Public Library is proud to offer reading logs to anyone who would like to participate, as well as prizes for milestones that you reach with your child!
