1000 Books Before 6


1000 Books Before 6

By Rose Khoury


The Santa Clara County Library District, in partnership with FIRST5 Santa Clara County, is pleased to announce a new program called 1000 Books Before 6. This is an ongoing program that promotes reading and literacy for parents and caregivers of newborns, infants, and toddlers. Parents and caregivers can begin registering for this program on September 15.


By participating in the program, the parent or caregiver will receive a log numbered from 1 to 1000. As the parent or caregiver reads a book with the child, they are encouraged to mark off a circle in the log.  As children reach certain milestones in their log, they can visit their local library to pick up a prize. When reaching the final goal of 1000 books, children will receive a free book and a certificate. This program is designed to encourage parents and caregivers to read one book with their children every day. Also included in the log are several early literacy tips for parents and caregivers.


How do I sign up?


Parents or caregivers can sign up at any library within the Santa Clara County Library District by visiting the children’s reference desk. The materials for 1000 Books Before 6 will also be available in Spanish and Chinese. When signing up, parents and caregivers will be provided with the log, booklists, and more details about the program.
