‘1000 Books Before Kindergarten’ goes online

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 youth@nols.org to have forms mailed, or pick one up during the library’s curbside service.

The program is made possible through generous support from the Friends of Sequim Library, Port Angeles Friends of the Library, Friends of the Forks Library and Clallam Bay Friends of the Library.

Make a virtual visit to the library at www.nols.org to learn about more programming and services currently available at NOLS.

For more information about this and other services for youth, call 360-417.8500 x2, or email to youth@nols.org.
