1000 Books Before Kindergarten

Registration will begin on April 26.

Tacoma Public Library is excited to introduce a new reading program for our youngest patrons called 1000 Books Before Kindergarten! 

Does reading 1000 books sound like a lot? We know you can do it! Whether your child is three years old, three months old, or three days old, there is no better time to start building early literacy skills than today. TPL librarians are here to help!

Any child who hasn’t started kindergarten is encouraged to participate! You can start at any time, just do your best to finish before your child enters kindergarten.
