Get on Your Way to 1000 Books Before Kindergarten!

1000 Books Before Kindergarten is a national program to encourage parents to read at least one book daily to their children from birth through age 5.  More information about the program can be found at

At Lincoln Carnegie Library we understand the importance of Early Literacy. Parents and caregivers can sign-up for the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten program any day at the Library.

We celebrate every 100 book milestone by posting pictures on facebook (with permission) and giving children a sticker. There is also a party once a year to celebrate those that have reached 1000 books.

The Library has loads of board books and picture books that are ready to be checked out and enjoyed!

Literacy truly does begin on a lap!

Kansas Reads to Preschoolers

Last month was Kansas Reads to Preschoolers month. I love this time of year as I get to visit the preschool and see some new faces! Our book this year was "Ten Pigs: An Epic Bath Adventure" by Derek Anderson. We had fun reenacting the story, and yes, 10 preschoolers really can fit in one small pool, but what happens when the wolf comes . . . Stop by the Library to check out this fun story and other specially selected Kansas Reads to Preschoolers books.
