Get ready to celebrate a decade of literacy milestones: the 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten reading program turns 10 this year! This cherished initiative plays a crucial role in nurturing language and early literacy skills for your child’s future reading endeavors.

Join the party and make a splash during our celebration from March 1 to May 31. Whether you’re a past, future, or current participant, drop into the library for activities, adorable photo ops, and the chance to win fantastic prizes in special drawings.

Two winners will be drawn each month of the celebration.

  2. Already in 1KBK? Check your progress in at the Children’s desk.
  3. Complete 1KBK or tell us you completed it in the past.
  4. Snap a photo with our photo frame then post it on social media with the hashtag #1000booksCMPLD. Don’t forget to tag the Library @cooklibrary!
