 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

Join the Worm on books1,000 Books Before Kindergarten Club at Tredyffrin Public Library! Read 1,000 books with your child before he or she enters school–a goal experts say children need to help them learn to read for themselves. One of the best ways to encourage learning is to spend time sharing books every day. Reading together helps develop important pre-reading skills that provide a solid reading foundation—a key to school and learning success. Plus, sharing stories together is fun! To sign up, stop by the library or call 610-688-7092 x210. For more information, please email Angie at aandre@ccls.org.
