Reading to preschoolers is beneficial for their brain development and academic success. It is correlated with improved attention spans and better concentration. Early reading also ignites the child's creativity and imagination, teaches them sight words and expands vocabulary.

The 1000 Books program is designed be a fun approach to establishing strong early literacy skills. The kids will get to have their photo on our 1000 Books Before Kindergarten bulletin board when they read 100 books, will receive a sticker for every 100 books, and will receive a book gift to keep when they reach 1000 books.

Get started fostering a lifelong love of reading today... choose between a traditional paper reading log that you can pick up at the library, or download the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten app to keep track digitally. Feel free to ask at the front desk if you have any questions.

Any time is a great time to introduce a new way of enjoying books to your kids — our preloaded Nook® HDs allow kids to enjoy old and new favorites in a safe and age appropriate manner.

All Nook HDs come with parental controls and do not access the Internet or games — they are just for reading. Just power up and go! Nook HDs check out for 3 weeks.

Ready4K: Text messages to boost your child's learning

Parents of preschoolers, you can now sign up for a new, free texting service that delivers fun facts and easy tips to your phone. Called Ready4K, the texting service shows parents how to boost children’s learning and get them ready for kindergarten. In the last year, the University of Wyoming's Literacy Research Center and Clinic teamed up with Stanford University to develop and research Ready4K to make this service available in Wyoming. Research shows that receiving these helpful texts can significantly increase children’s learning. Parents and caregivers with children, ages 3 to 5, are invited to sign up for the free service, which provides three texts per week. The service is available in English and Spanish.
