How does it work?
The goal is to read 1,000 books before your child enters kindergarten. This program is self-paced and can take a few months to a few years. All you have to do is keep track of the books you are reading to your child.
What books count?
Any books! Record each time you read a book, even if it has been read before—rereading favorite books is allowed!
How do we keep track?
The easiest and most common paper tracker is the dot reading record; simply color a circle for each book you read. For more detailed-oriented families, we offer the lined reading record to write down the title of each book read.
We also offer an online tracking option via Beanstack. Visit eastgreenbushlibrary.beanstack.org to register or download the Beanstack app:
How do we check-in?
Bring each completed reading record into the library to receive a sticker, a free book, and your next reading log. When you complete the program, your child will receive a certificate, tote bag, and a free book, and their picture will be added to our 1000 Books Wall of Fame!
