Resolve to Read

About

This January, Mauney Memorial Library is encouraging parents to resolve to read aloud to their children!

Reading to children before they begin kindergarten improves reading comprehension and bonding, and leads to developing good reading habits in and out of school.

1000 Books Before Kindergarten

1000 Books Before Kindergarten is an initiative to read at least 1000 books to your child before they enter Kindergarten. This can seem daunting, but reading one book every day will get you to the goal in less than 3 years! And, of course, books can be repeated.
