Growing Readers One Book at a Time

The simple and enjoyable act of sharing books will help your child learn pre-reading skills such as understanding the sound letters make, developing a bigger vocabulary, and building background knowledge--important skills that help prepare your child for learning to read and entering kindergarten.  

1,000 Books Before Kindergarten is a year-round reading program for children ages birth to five years and it’s coming to The Urbana Free Library on October 1, 2015.  Participation is easy—sign up at the Library, track your reading progress, and receive special a reward when you reach a reading milestone.  

It’s the fun, exciting, and free way to start your child on the path to success!
