1000 BOOKS BEFORE KINDERGARTEN!
Giving Young Children the Tools to Become Successful Readers
NH 1000 Books Before Kindergarten is a new Library program that encourages all Barrington families to read 1,000 books with their young children before they enter kindergarten.
Studies have shown that families who start reading aloud to their children from infancy help to strengthen their language skills and build their vocabulary – two important tools for beginning to learn to read when they enter kindergarten.

How Does 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten Work?
Each time you read a book, log it (if you repeat books, they count, log it!).  If your child hears a story with someone else, log it. 

How Can I Read 1000 Books? 
It’s easy! One book a day for three years = 1095. Three books a day for one year = 1095. Ten books a week for two years = 1040.


Sign up your child online HERE. You can log books online or in paper format to bring into the library to have staff check the online account and/or log the amount online for you. Paper logs are available at the library.

 
When you and your child finish reading the first 100 books, come back to the library to receive a special canvas book bag for your child while supplies last (sponsored by the Friends of the Barrington Public library)!  Come in after each 100-book goal to let your child pick from the prize box.
When they reach 1000 books they get to pick a FREE Book and get their picture taken with our 1000 Before Kindergarten Board!
