Prepare your little one for kindergarten through the world of books. This program invites you to read 1,000 books during the first five years of your child's life. For each milestone you reach in your journey (100, 250, 500, 750, and 1,000 books), you will receive a prize.
Start tracking your progress today by picking up a reading log at any City Library location or through Beanstack at slcpl.beanstack.org.
