Plant a Learning Seed....... READ

1000 Books

Plant a learning seed and read with your child!
Welcome to the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten Club! This FREE program encourages you to read 1000 books with your child before he or she enters school- a goal experts say children need to help them learn to read for themselves.
One of the best ways to encourage learning is to spend time sharing books every day. Reading together helps develop important pre-reading skills that provide a solid reading foundation- a key to school and learning success. Plus, sharing stories together is fun!
Here are the easy steps for participation:
1.    Get your Reading Log and FREE Tote bag (while supplies last) during  Wee Ones Story Time (Mondays at 9:30 am) or Toddler Story Time (Tuesdays or Fridays at 10:30 am)

2.    Read together.

3.    Write the titles on your Plant a Learning Seed, Read reading log. If you read a book more than once you may record it each time. Books read at library story time, at daycare, or by others to your child also count!

4.    When you finish 100 books, bring your completed reading log to Tredyffrin Public Library and:
a.    Place a sticker on our Plant a Learning Seed, Read Mural.
b.    Collect your next reading log for your next 100 books.
c.    Collect a special prize.

5.    Repeat steps 1-3 and receive a sticker for our Plant a Learning Seed, Read Mural and a new reading log at each 100 book level.
When you reach the 500 book level you will receive an extra special gift.

6.    After finishing 1000 books, your child
Receives a certificate of completion.
Has his or her name placed on our Reading Hall of Fame on our blog
Has the opportunity to apply for his or her own library card.
Receives a special holder for their library card.
The club has no end date except your child’s starting school, so don’t feel rushed, just enjoy the experience. Take every chance you have to read with your children, tell and talk about stories, say nursery rhymes, sing songs, and attend library programs (especially story times).
By reading just three stories a day you and your child will have read over 1000 books in one year. You will also have shared many special moments. The reading log you keep will become a special keepsake memory.

If you have any questions please email Angie at or Carla at
Happy Reading!
