1000 Books Before Kindergarten
What is the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten program?
1000 Books Before Kindergarten (1000B4K) is a program that encourages families to read at least 1,000 books with their child before they enter Kindergarten. This free program is an initiative launched by the Georgia Public Library Service in support of early literacy.
Why should my child participate?
It will help them enter school ready to learn! Research confirms that exposing children to books before they enter kindergarten helps in the development of language and literacy skills. These skills will help them be more successful in the classroom. It is also a great way to spend quality time with your child. And it's fun!
Who can participate?
Our 1000 Books B4 Kindergarten program is for young children who have not yet entered kindergarten. It is for any child aged birth - kindergarten. Children do not have to live in Bartow County to participate.
How does it work?
  1. Register for 1000 Books B4 Kindergarten today on Beanstack. Beanstack is an online reading tracker for your whole family. Download the Beanstack (By Zoobean) app to make logging even easier! You may also visit any Bartow County Library branch to register your child for this free program.
  2. Track your reading: Fill in a circle on the reading logs or use the Beanstack app to log each book you read with your child.
  3. Every book counts: 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 storytime, daycare or preschool, or with a friend or family member, as long as your child listens to the entire book.
  4. 100 Book Milestones: Each time you read 100 books, bring your reading record to the library to pick up a free book.
  5. 1,000 Books: You did it! Come celebrate at the library with a certificate and receive a prize.
  6. Keep on Reading: Don't stop at 1,000! Keep on reading together; there's more learning ahead!
