1,000 Books Before Kindergarten (Ages 0-5)
Embark on your own personal journey!!! Enjoy reading 1,000 books with your little ones! Log reading and earn badges all along the way. If you start when your child is 3 years old just reading them one book a night, by the time they turn 5 years old, you will have read 1,000 books to your child. Research shows that parents who engage their child through early literacy, those children perform at a higher level once they are in school.

Patrons can also earn badges for completing activities such as making a browsing appointment and doing a table-top activity, doing a take-home craft, and attending a virtual library program. After earning all of their badges, patrons can choose their prize.
Bird watching is a fun and relaxing outdoor activity! With the leaves falling and the foliage becoming bear, it is easier to spot birds fluttering about. Take a walk around your neighborhood, set up a birdfeeder outside your house, or go to the local park to see if you can spot each of these feathered friends. The challenge starts Jan 1st and ends Jan. 31st.
