1000 Books Before Kindergarten


How to Get Started:

Enroll your child at the Bluffton Library or the Ossian Branch and receive your 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten journal, the pages to track your first 100 books, and your starting information.

After each set of 100 books is read and recorded, take your journal to either building to receive a prize, the journal pages for your next 100 books, and your literacy information for the next 100 books. Note: If you prefer to get a head start on the next section, there are links to each of the journal pages that you can print at home.

When you and your child have read and recorded your 1,000th book, take your journal to either building for your final reward.  A staff member will take a picture of you and your child for the News-Banner or Ossian Journal.  Your child will receive a keepsake book, and have their picture on the 1,000 Books Wall.
