Introducing CLPL's new 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten Program!


1000 books before kindergarten


Crystal Lake Public Library's new 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten started

April 2.


The fun early literacy program is aimed at motivating parents/caregivers to spend time reading with their littles ones. Research has shown that reading to children is one of the best ways to prepare them for school.


The 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program is ongoing, and parents can register their children at anytime. We made sure to pack in lots of fun incentives and prizes along the way! You can take as long or as short as you want to complete the program. Your only deadline is your child's first day of kindergarten.


To get more information and to sign up for the program, visit the Youth Services Department.


Special thanks to the Rotary Club of Crystal Lake Dawnbreakers for sponsoring this new program!
