1000 Books Before Kindergarten

Babies to Kindergarten may be registered to participate in this program. Reading to your child will not only increase his or her chances for success in school, but it is a great way to nurture the parent/child bond.

Read 500 books and your child will receive a Phelps Public Library book bag. Read 1000 books and your child will receive a "1000 Books before Kindergarten" T-shirt. All our Story Hour stories will count toward the reading requirements for this program.

For more information, call the library at 715-545-2887 or email Children's Librarian, Teresa Franzen.
