Any child from birth to age 5 can sign up for the 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program at the Eagle Bend Public Library.
The child will receive a book bag and a tracking record. At every 20 books read, the librarian will stamp their record book and give them a sticker. At every 100 books they can look in the treasure chest for a prize. At 500 books read, they will receive a book. When the child reaches 1000 books, they will receive a hard cover book with matching stuffed animal.
This is an effective and enjoyable way to help your child get ready to become a proficient reader. A special 1000 book celebration is planned for September for all children participating in the program. Stop in and sign up.
