1000 Books Before Kindergarten
Read and Grow! Join “1000 Books Before Kindergarten” at Mead Public Library. Family reading time helps your child prepare for kindergarten. Join our program and keep track of the books you read to your child. Bring in your reading record every time you complete 100 books for a small reward. Eleanor (pictured at left) was the first child to finish! Congratulations! Your child could be the next! Visit the Henrietta A. Landwehr Children’s Library Center (third floor) at Mead Library to register. It’s free and fun! Open to all children not yet attending 5-year-old kindergarten.
The program is funded by Quality State Oil and a BP Fueling Communities Grant.
