1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

girl readingWelcome to the Salem Township Library's 1,000 books before kindergarten program! 

If a child is going to grow into a truly wonderful adult - someone who thinks, considers other points of view, has an open mind, and possess the ability to discuss great ideas with other people - a love of reading is an essential foundation. 

Sign your child up and pick up a folder at the library. It has everything you need to get started on your journey toward reading 1000 books. Even if your child wants to hear the same book again, and again, you can count it each time. You can also count the books your child hears in story hour, in daycare or preschool, or at home with a friend or family member, as long as your child listens to the entire book. 

Each time you read 100 books, bring your reading record to the library to receive a special reward. It's so much fun and so easy to do!

Congratulations to our latest readers - way to go!
