1000 Books before Kindergarten Logo

Congratulations to our "Wall of Fame" patrons who have read 1000 Books Before Kindergarten!

The library encourages all families and caregivers to read 1,000 books with their children before they enter kindergarten to help ensure their child has the necessary early literacy skills to succeed. To find out more about our 1000 Books Before Kindergarten program, stop by the Kids & Teens Ask Us Desk.

1000 Books Before Kindergarten has been funded in part by the Darien Rotary Club.
