1000 Books Before Kindergarten

<p>Description automatically generated

Camarillo Public Library invites you to join our new 1000 Books Before Kindergarten Program.  This early literacy program is a fun activity to do with your babies and toddlers. Reading to babies and toddlers helps them learn pre-reading skills.


Participating is easy!

  • Sign up online or at the library. If you prefer pen and paper, print out instructions and reading log here.
  • Read picture books with your child, repeats are okay and encouraged.
  • Remember to make reading interactive, use different voices, point out colors in pictures, ask questions.  As the child gets older ask them to predict what will happen next.
  • Mark off each book you read on the reading log and get started on your fun journey.
  • Pick up a bookmark and coloring sheets at the library.
  • Ask the library staff for recommendations of their favorite picture books.
