1,000 Books Before Kindergarten!

The Amherst Town Library is happy to announce their support of a nationwide initiative, 1000  Books Before Kindergarten. This program seeks to encourage families to read to their young children and to use the resources of their public libraries.  Sharing books with your child at an early age supports the development of important literacy skills, and it's also lots of fun.  There is a display in the Children's Room with information, reading tips, and checklists of reading suggestions---come on down and take a look!  Then, go ahead and take the 1000 Book challenge---check out a pile of books, and start reading!
