1000 Books Before Kindergarten 

Sanbornton Public Library in conjunction with the Children’s Librarians of New Hampshire join in a national program to promote 1000 Books before Kindergarten. The initiative was started in Nevada and has spread nationally to encourage families to read to their children everyday. The 1000 Book Foundation says that  “if you read just 1 book a night, you will have read about 365 books in a year. That is 730 books in two years and 1,095 books in three years. If you consider that most children start kindergarten at around 5 years of age, you have more time than you think (so get started).” 
 
Thanks to the generous support of Steele Hill Resorts and their Usborne book program with Carol Varney. The library will be giving out a new board book to babies born in Sanbornton along with information about how to engage the very young in a love of reading. If you are looking for more information check out these websites 1000 books before kindergarten and NH Children’s Librarians calendar of literacy activities.
