August 19, 2020 | View PDF
Jace Urlacher, 5, recently completed a huge milestone by reading 1,000 books! Jace was able to reach his goal by reading lots of books about the earth. Jace is the son of Jackie and Jake Urlacher.
To encourage a love of reading in children like Jace, 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!
