We are pleased to continue 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten at Riverdale Public Library! 

This program, started in January 2016, has been on-going as participants engage with it at their own pace; caretakers and their pre-kindergartners are encouraged to read together until they reach 1,000 books read.

Anyone can register their little one to be eligible for reading incentives. Just call the library or email Ms. Kate to register.

Then pick up a reading log, record your books, and visit the library each time you read 100 books to receive a small prize. Check out the official 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten website here for more information about this wonderful national initiative. 

Happy Reading!
