1000 Books Before Kindergarten

Did you know that reading to your child is one of the most powerful ways to boost their brain power? The Aurora Public Library District’s 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program is a fun, exciting, and free way to start your child on the path to success! All you need to do is track the books you read to your child from now until they go to Kindergarten in the special tracking log! Any child ages birth to five years can participate.

One thousand books may seem like a lot, but if you read just one book a night, you’ll meet your goal in less than 3 years. If you read three books a night, you could reach your goal in just one year!

Then stop by one of our library buildings to get a free bag for books and your reading log.
