A Young Achievement Of 1,000 Books!
March 17, 2021 | View PDF
At just two years old, Brynlee has already read 1,000 books! Despite her young age, she was able to complete this milestone because of her love for books. She can sit for hours looking through board books independently and is well on her way to becoming an independent reader.
To encourage a love of reaching in children, 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!
