1000 Books Before Kindergarten

Read It and Reap!

The Solomon Wright Public Library is excited to join the Bennington County 1000 Books Before Kindergarten initiative!  

1KBB4K is so simple!  Just sign up at your local library, keep track of the books you read with your child, and earn free books when you reach big milestones.  All the books you read with your child, no matter where they come from, will count toward your reading goals, but if you'd like to borrow a special 1KBB4K backpack full of great books, let us know!
