1,000 Things Before Kindergarten

A little reading every day gets your little one ready for school! Earn a free, new book for every 100 read! Visit any MRL location to get started. 

How it works: Read books and do suggested activities with your child. The goal is to have read 1,000 books and/or do 1,000 activities before the child starts kindergarten. Books and activities can be repeated. Books read at library story times count.

Feel free to print extra reading logs at home.
