1000 Books Before Kindergarten

Registration Form.

The concept is simple, the rewards are priceless. Read a book (any book) to your newborn, infant, and/or toddler. The goal is to have read 1,000 books (yes you can repeat books) before your precious one starts kindergarten. Does it sound hard? Not really if you think about it. If you read just 1 book a night, you will have read about 365 books in a year. .

Register for the program 1000 Books before Kindergarten with us, and then start reading to child. Print and fill out the registration form here and email: bcplyouthservices@gmail.com or send it snail mail to us at BCPL Youth Services 185 Court Street, Binghamton, NY 13901. After reading 100 books either take a picture and email it to us or come in and we will accept it. Prizes awarded at different levels.
