1000 Books Before Kindergarten  

Read. Track. Win!

1KBb4K is a year-round library program that encourages all families and caregivers to read at least 1,000 books with their young children before they enter Kindergarten. Reading to your children is the best way to prepare them for Kindergarten! 1KBb4K encourages families to spend quality time together and promotes pre-literacy learning so that children enter school ready to read, listen, and learn.

  • Any child from birth to entering Kindergarten can participate in this self-paced early literacy program at Handley Regional Library System.
  • Each Fall and Spring, we have a graduation ceremony to acknowledge the achievement of the graduates of the program.
  • Learn more about the program HERE.
