1000 BOOKS BEFORE KINDERGARTEN
Lilly Library is participating in 1000 Books before Kindergarten, a nationwide challenge that encourages parents and caregivers to regularly read aloud to their children. Children from age 0-5 are eligible to participate. Come by the children’s room to pick up a reading log– for every 100 books you read + log, your child will receive a brand new book to take home. All participants get a new tote bag and book, just for signing up!
