Library Resources for Your Young Reader

1000 Books Project


If you are a parent or guardian of a Preschool (4 years and up), Kindergarten or 1st Grade student, you and your child are invited to participate in the 1000 Books Project. The purpose of the project is to foster a love of reading by providing families with wonderful books to read. Each bag contains 10 books, and for every 100 books read, your child can select a free paperback book. A child who reads 1000 books will have his/her name displayed on a plaque in the school library. Download and print the 1000 Books Contract in English or the 1000 Books Contract in Spanish, bring it to your child's school's library and begin this enriching, enjoyable activity with your child.
