DATABASE OF THE MONTH

Every month we highlight a Research Resource available through our website.

          

Ready to get a jump start on Kindergarten?  Check out the 1000 Books before Kindergarten App!

 

The 1000 Books Before Kindergarten App is now live in the app store, available for both Apple and Android products.  The app is a convenient way for you to track your children’s reading progress throughout the program.  Synced with Google books, it is now easier than ever to search and add books to your child’s collection.  Reading together helps to encourage learning and promotes pre-reading skills.  With achievements, goals, and prizes throughout the journey to 1000 books, your kids will be excited to sit down and snuggle up with a good book.  

 

Started the program on paper?  Never fear!  Stop by your library and one of the friendly librarians will be happy to help catch the app up.  To learn more about the 1000 Books before Kindergarten, visit our library!

 

Also available:  500 Books Before High School!
