February 26, 2020 | View PDF
Jack Siebenaler, 4, recently completed a huge milestone by reading 1,000 books! It's no surprise that this superhero loves to spend his time reading all about Spiderman! It's no surprise that Jack reached his goal so quickly. His favorite part of bedtime is seeing just how many books he can convince his Mom and Dad to read. Jack is the son of K.C. and Erin Siebenaler.
To encourage a love of reading in children like Jack, the Sidney-Richland County Library is promoting "1,000 Books before Kindergarten", a nationwide program that encourages parents and caregivers to read aloud with their children every day. Research continually shows that children who are read aloud to every day before kindergarten will have higher scores and more success when they begin school. Most importantly, sharing books with children promotes a lifelong love of books and learning.
The theme of the Sidney-Richland County Library program is "The Magic of Reading". Children receive a small prize at each 100-level milestone, and at the end of the program, participants earn a certificate and t-shirt for successful completion. This program is free to children ages 0-4 and their families. Stop by the library to sign up today!
