Camden County Library Joins 1000 Books before Kindergarten

VOORHEES, NJ – Sept. 23, 2015 – The Camden County Library System is proud and pleased to announce it will offer parents and other caregivers the chance to participate in the 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program that encourages parents to read with their children as a way to develop early literacy, a love of reading and to prepare for school.

Based on the finding that reading together on a regular basis is the single most important way to get children ready to read and to later succeed in school, the program is designed to give families incentives and support to accomplish the goal of each child reading 1,000 books before he or she starts kindergarten.

1000 Books Before Kindergarten, a national nonprofit based in Nevada, asserts the goal can be easily achieved by merely reading a book a night before bedtime. The library will provide parents with simple reading logs, reading goals and incentives to track the progress of their children as they read more and more books.
