1,000 Books Before Kindergarten
The Marathon County Public Library is challenging parents to read more books aloud with their children! The "1,000 Books Before Kindergarten" initiative is meant to introduce children to a wide range of literature, encourage families to spend quality time together and promote pre-literacy and learning so children enter school ready to read, listen and learn.

Although 1,000 books sounds like a huge number, consider this: If you read one book a day, you could finish in less than three years. Ten books per week? Less than two years. We’ll give you more tips and suggestions, too.

Families who register will receive a folder with a sheet to record each 100 books, a garden sheet, and instructions. Incentives include stickers, books and book bags, and a “graduation party” for those who complete 1,000 books.
