The North Olympic Library System’s 1000 Books Before Kindergarten Challenge, a nationwide program that encourage parents and caregivers to continue to read with the children in their lives, has moved online.
Organizers of the free program challenge participants to read 1,000 books with the young children in their lives before they begin kindergarten to help instill key language and vocabulary skills.
All children up to age 5 are encouraged to participate.
Register and track reading progress online by using “Beanstack” at www.nols.org/1000-books-before-kindergarten. Along the way, earn digital badges to highlight progress. With 500 books read, earn a NOLS tote bag, and with 1,000 get celebratory book for one’s personal collection. Those who prefer to keep track by paper can contact a library staffer at 360-417-8500, x2, or email to email@example.com to have forms mailed, or pick one up during the library’s curbside service.
Make a virtual visit to the library at www.nols.org to learn about more programming and services currently available at NOLS.
