Schuylerville Elementary encourages “1,000 Books before Kindergarten”

Schuylerville Elementary School is urging families to take part in the Schuylerville Public Library’s “1,000 Books before Kindergarten” program. The program is a pre-literacy effort aimed at encouraging families to read at least 1,000 books to their child before they enter school. The goal of the program is to foster a love of reading that will last a lifetime and to help children enter school ready to learn.

HOW IT WORKS

Register your child or family online on the Schuylerville Public Library website by clicking here, or print the registration form by clicking here and return it to the library. The next step, start reading! For every 100 books your child or your family reads, bring the tracker to the library and add a sprinkle to the library’s ice cream tower.

Schuylerville Elementary School has donated several kick-start bags to the library to help get families started. The bags each include 10 books that do not have to be “checked out” and do not have a “due date.”
