The Palmdale City Library’s 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program continues at the Library, located at 700 E. Palmdale Blvd.
1,000 Books Before Kindergarten is a nationwide program that encourages parents with children up to age 5 to read to them regularly. Keeping track makes it fun and keeps families invested in the process.
“Start the new year off right by making reading a priority,” said Library Associate Shay Hawken. “Pick up your free 1000 Books Before Kindergarten folder to get you started. Each time you read a book with your child, write down the title in your log. Each time you read 100 books, take your log to the library to get a sticker and a prize for certain milestones. We will add your child’s name to our Reading Rocket each time you read 100 books!”
The Palmdale City Library is open seven days a week. Hours of operation are Monday through Thursday from 10 am to 8 pm; Friday and Saturday from 10 am to 5 pm; and Sunday from 1 to 5 pm.
