Register for 1000 Books Before Kindergarten at HPL! 1000 Books Before Kindergarten is a fun way to help prepare your child for Kindergarten. 

Reading to a child expands their language skills, imagination, and it is a great bonding experience that will create life-long memories.The guidelines are simple; for every book you read, make sure to log it into your READSquared account. Yes, repeats count!

If you read the same book 10 times, enter in 10 spaces on your reading log. For every reading log you complete, you will receive a digital badge! You will also periodically be receiving raffle prizes through READSquared to celebrate your progress, and consistent literacy tips from our literacy coordinator. Remember, if you read 3 books a night every night, that is 1,095 books in one year! For any questions please email Ms. Vanessa.

Contact us if you have any questions about programs and services for your young readers.
