Celebrate our graduates!

On Tuesday, September 26, the 9th graduating class of the library’s 1,001 Books Before Kindergarten program received their “diplomas” to recognize their wonderful accomplishment. Youth Services Department Manager Alicia Parmele noted at the ceremony the current class had read approximately 19,000 books, for a total of 287,000 books read by the 144 children who have completed the program.

The 1,001 Books Before Kindergarten program was created to encourage parents to read to their children, foster a love of reading, and assist with early literacy skills. Read more about the program here.
