1,000 Books Program
Beginning February 1, the Alexandrian Public Library will offer an early literacy initiative called 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten. This reading program is a multi-year project that seeks to encourage parents to read aloud at least 1,000 books to their children before they enter school.
The program is open to any preschooler from birth through the child’s entrance into kindergarten and is based upon evidence from research which has found that the more children ages 0-5 hear books read to them, the more prepared they will be to learn to read once they enter school.
The 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program provides a fun method to encourage families to read aloud to their preschoolers by offering a framework similar to the annual summer reading program. Parents can sign up their children at the library or bookmobile where they will receive a book bag, lists of recommended books, and a reading log on which they will record the titles of the first 100 books that have been read to their child. When they complete the reading log, they may come to the library or bookmobile for a sticker and the reading log for the next 100 books and so on, until they have read 1,000 books.
Various incentives will be offered at the 200, 500, and 800 books levels. Children who reach the 1,000 books level will receive a certificate, a book, and will have their name added to a special display in the library honoring those who complete the program.
For more information about this program, call the Alexandrian Public Library Youth Services Desk at 838-3286.
