September 1KB4K Sign-up Challenge
Sign them up for 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten (1KB4K) at Wyoming Public Library during the month of September for a chance to win a bag of books to help you get started!
The program in a nutshell:
**When you enroll your child in 1KB4K you will receive a folder that contains your first 1KB4K Chart. For every book you read, cross off one circle on your chart.
**When you have read 100 books to your child, bring the completed 1KB4K Chart to the library. Your child will get his or her name on our Wall of Fame, a sticker, a 1KB4K Chart and a prize from the treasure box.
**After every 100 books, make sure to pick up your sticker and the next 1KB4K Chart.
**When your child reaches 1,000 books, he or she will receive their very own book bag and a stylish Certificate of Achievement.
Finished all the steps? Congratulations! You did it! You gave your children a priceless gift — the readiness to read!
Every child in your family can participate, from infant up to Kindergarten.
Does reading 1,000 books seem totally overwhelming? We promise, it's not as hard as you think!
*It's one bedtime story every night for 3 years. OR
*It's ten books a week for 2 years. OR
*It's twenty books a week for one year (that's just 3 books a day!)
Read the same book over, and over, and over.
Storytimes count, too!
It's simple, fun and we'll help you get there!
