Register Now For 1000 Books Before Kindergarten Program

Rockford Public Library is thrilled to introduce the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten program to our community with sponsorship from the Rockford Friends of the Library.
When you register your infant-to-pre-K child at our library you will receive a journal and stickers to keep track of books you and your child read. There are fantastic prizes awarded along the way to reading 1000 books and a certificate awarded when the child reaches 1000 books read or becomes a kindergartner, whichever comes first. This program is designed to promote awareness of the importance of early literacy and to encourage parents to enthusiastically embrace their role as their child’s first teacher. This in turn will help children develop a love for reading in addition to helping children enter school ready to learn. Stop by and find out more today. We’d love to share information about this fun free program with you!
