1000 Books Before School

Encourage early literacy and a love of reading for your child.

Parents can join children at any stage during the year.

The program is for children aged from birth to starting kindergarten.

The target of 1,000 books may seem huge but can easily be achieved in less than three years with little effort.

If the child attends Storytime at the Library or the Grenfell Pre-School & Long Day Care Centre, the books read will count towards the 1,000 total.

Stories from Story Box, BorrowBox and indyreads™ count as well.

An investment of one book a day, three to four minutes is all that is necessary to open a child’s mind to a lifelong love of books and learning.

Certificate presentations are held quarterly.

So, install Beanstack tracker app and sign up your child to the program today.
