1,000 Books Before Kindergarten is a simple and fun way to help your little one develop early literacy skills. The idea is simple. The goal is to read 1,000 books to your little one before Kindergarten. Yes, you can repeat books. Yes, the stories that we read in storytime can be counted. It sounds like a lot, but you can do it!

Who Can Participate?

You can register online at or visit us at any Ascension Parish Library location. You will be able to track your books either online or on a print reading log which you can download and print at home or pick up at any of our locations.
