Sawyer Soars To 1,000 Books

Sawyer Hermanson is already a bookworm, reading 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten! She is a regular at Storytime and loves picking out books with her sister Avery, mom, and grandma each week.

Sawyer's favorite books include "Bruce the Bear," "Pete the Cat," and "Disney Princesses."

She enjoys playing with her baby dolls and magna tiles before listening to 4-6 books at bedtime. When she grows up, Sawyer wants to be a graduation girl and Elsa. Sawyer, age 2.5, is the daughter of Wyatt and Caycee Hermanson.

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