How to Get Started
Register your child at the Children’s Reference Desk. You will get a Welcome Kit and Reading Logs!
Read together and record the books in your reading log or on the 1000 Books App. You can read whatever you want and can repeat books as many times as your child wants.
Once you finish 100 books, come in with your reading log. For every 100 books read, your child will earn a prize. When you reach 1,000 books, come in for a diploma and final reward!
