1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

1000 Books Before Kindergarten -- Read it and Reap

Can you read 1000 books with your child before Kindergarten? We think so, and we’ll give you your own book to take home and cherish after every 250 books read together!

Take the challenge at any Brookline library. You can pick up your log and start reading beginning October 20. You can also download a copy here. This program is suitable for children ages 0-5. Start as early as you can, but it’s never too late. For more details be sure to check out our flyer.

We also encourage you to READ, WRITE, TALK, SING, and PLAY with your child with your child every day as recommended by Every Child Ready to Read.

Co-Sponsored by Brookline Early Education Program (BEEP) and generously sponsored by the Friends of the Brookline Library.
