1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

Washoe County Library’s 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program is a fun, exciting, and free way to start your child on the path to success!

Any child ages 0-5 years can participate. Just follow these steps:

  1. Get Started: Pick up a reading log at your local branch or download the Beanstack app to your smartphone. 
  2. Track Your Reading: Fill in a circle or record the titles. 
  3. Every Book Counts: New book, same book, or story time book, it all counts. 
  4. 100-Book Milestones: You completed the log! Great! Grab another and keep going! 
  5. 1,000 Books: You did it! Come to the library and receive a certificate of completion. 
  6. Keep on Reading: Don’t stop at 1,000! Keep on reading together. There’s more learning ahead!

If you read just one book a night, you’ll meet your goal in less than 3 years. Ask our friendly staff for suggestions — we’re here to help you on your journey to 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten!

Happy Reading!
