Twin Sisters Read 1,000 Books

Twins Aspen and Piper Geer are a dynamite duo, reading 1,000 books together! Animal books are beloved by both girls, and favorites include "Doggo and Pupper" and "Owl Diaries". Reading is a central activity in their home, and they make weekly visits to the library to find new books. They spend their days painting, playing outdoors, and using their imaginations to invent new games.

When they grow up, Aspen wants to be a cowboy and take care of animals while Piper wants to paint pictures and hang them very high. Piper and Aspen, age 3-5, are the daughters of Jake and Hosanna Geer.

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 "Reading is Magic".

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 for children ages 0-5 and their families. Stop by the library to sign up today!
