1,000 Books Before Kindergarten



The Vermilion Parish Library is excited to offer the 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program. It’s as easy as it sounds – make a goal to read 1,000 books to your child before Kindergarten. This program has been launched in libraries across the country as an effort to increase the development of early literacy skills in young children. Reading aloud helps develop children’s language skills and imagination. 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten is a fun, free way to start your child on the path to success. 1,000 books may seem like a lot, but if you read one book a night, you’ll reach your goal in less than 3 years. Children from birth to 5 years can participate. Stop by your library to register and pick up a reading log to start your first 100 books with your child. Every book counts!! Happy reading!
