Register Today @ the Children's Desk!  

How it works:

  • Show your Provo City Library Card to sign up for the program with your child, 4 years or younger.
  • Receive your free 1000 Books Before Kindergarten tote bag.
  • Start reading!  Your first reading log will cover books 1-100.  When you have completed your first 100 books, bring your log to the Children's desk where your child can choose from the treasure box and pick up a reading log for the next 100 books.
  • Continue reading!  After each 100 books, return to the Children's desk to pick up a prize and the next reading log.
  • When you complete your final reading log (books 901-1000!) before your child begins kindergarten, come to the Children's desk for a prize and your certificate of completion.
  • Each August we will host a 1000 Books Before Kindergarten Completion Party for all of the children who have completed the program that year.  Let's celebrate your awesome achievement!

Don't stop there; keep reading! Reading aloud with your child every day helps build their vocabulary and language skills. Help prepare your child for school by reading at least 1,000 books to them before they start kindergarten.
