1,000 Books Before Kindergarten is a Nevada based non-profit working to promote early literacy across the country and has even reached parts of Canada. We are excited to announce this program's arrival here at Killingly Public Library!
Reading to your child is an magnificent bonding experience that promotes early literacy and fosters your child's lasting love of reading. We at the library are here to encourage and inspire you and your child to reach this incredible goal.
Here's how our program works:
Stop in to register your child(ren) and receive your 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten Starter-Kit
Each Starter Kit includes an official 1,000 Books Binder, Instructions, and the first section of your Reading Log
Stop in with each completed log section to get your next section and receive literacy based prizes as you reach each of our milestones at 250, 500, and 750 books.
Yes! You can repeat books!
Once you have reached 1,000 books, come in and show us all the books you've read, receive your official KPL 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten T-Shirt, and claim your spot on our 1,000 Books Wall of Fame!
Accept the challenge! Visit us and register today!

The 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten iOS app is now available! If you prefer to use the app to log your reading on your iPhone or iPad, we will accept that format as well!
