Join Lee County Library's 1000 Books Before

Kindergarten Club

This free program encourages you to read 1000 books with your child before he or she enters school.

One of the best ways to encourage learning is to spend time sharing books every day. Reading together helps develop important pre-reading skills that provide a solid reading foundation—a key to school and learning success. Plus, sharing stories together is fun!

Participation is easy!

1. Read together

2. Write the titles on your log. If you read a book more than once, you can record it each time. Books read at library storytime, at daycare, or by others to your child also count!

3. When you finish 100 books, bring your log to the library and

    • Receive a sticker
    • Place an animal on our 1000 Books B4K display
    • Collect your next log

4. Repeat steps 1-3 and receive a different sticker and farm animal-themed log at each level.

This club has no end date except your child’s entering kindergarten, so don’t feel rushed—just enjoy the experience! Take every chance you have to read with your child, tell and talk about stories, say nursery rhymes, sing songs, and attend library programs. By reading just three stories a day you and your child will have read over 1000 books in one year. You will also have shared many special moments along the way.

The library is a fun place featuring books to check out, free programs, and great suggestions for what to read. Stop in often and talk to our friendly staff—we are here to help.

Happy reading!


If you would like to get started online rather than use a paper copy, you can visit and sign your child up there.
Every 100 your child finishes, just print out the log and bring it to one of the Lee County Libraries for your animal and sticker!
