1,000 Books Before Kindergarten (archived webinar from NEO)

Date

This is an archived webinar available from our colleagues at the Northeast Regional Library System.


Presenter: Rena Wright, Assistant Manager of Youth Services, Orrville Public Library
 
Rena will discuss the details of this program, the challenges and successes she's had at her library and ways you can implement it at your library.  1,000 Books before Kindergarten is an initiative to promote early literacy and reading to parents and caretakers of infants and very young children. The goal is to encourage parents to read one thousand books with their children before sending them to kindergarten. Reading together builds the necessary early literacy skills every child needs in order to learn to read.  Listening to books and reading together with parents and caretakers nurtures childhood brain development and builds the necessary early literacy skills every child needs in order to learn to read and be prepared for school.
