1000 Books Before Kindergarten

The Corona Public Library is pleased to have joined the 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten reading program. This is a free national program that encourages parents and caregivers to read 1,000 books with their child before he or she enters kindergarten.

The concept is simple, the rewards are priceless! Read a book (any book) to your newborn, infant, and/or toddler. The goal is to read 1,000 books before your little one starts kindergarten. If you read just 1 book a night, you will have read about 365 books in a year. That’s 730 books in two years and 1,095 books in three years! Most children start kindergarten at around 5 years of age, so you have more time than you think! Studies have shown that reading with your child provides a great opportunity for bonding. Reading together is fun and will create life-long memories for both of you.
