Families are invited to join the 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program at East Providence Public Library! The 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program is a nationwide challenge that encourages parents and caregivers to regularly read aloud to their children. By reading just one book a night, families can reach the 1,000-book goal in three years and provide their children essential early literacy skills. The challenge is available to all families with children between the ages of birth and six years. Registration is open! For every 100 books you read with your child, visit the library for a special prize. For more information, call the library at 401-434-2453 or visit our website at www.eastprovidencelibrary.org.
