1000 Books Before Kindergarten


The Bremen Public Library in Indiana offered the first 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program, created from the inspiration found in Mem Fox's book, Reading Magic.  It has spread from there, with libraries primarily in the Midwest and a few in the Northeast offering the program.  The Lester Public Library of Rome has also adopted this program.
