Ongoing: 1000 Books Before Kindergarten
We’re joining the National “1000 Books Before Kindergarten” Campaign. It’s fun, free, and helps to build a lifelong love of books. If you read just 1 book a day to your child for 3 years, that equals 1,095 books! You can count the same book multiple times, count books read in storytime, at daycare…anywhere! This program also pairs with Project Read. You can participate in both programs with one easy calendar! Pick up a new calendar every month. Visit the library anytime to register & learn more! Join the WPL “Road to Reading” with milestone prizes along the way!
Ongoing: Project Read
Wyoming County families are invited to participate in this reading program that begins in infancy and continues through elementary school. Read together for 15 minutes a day for at least 20 days a month. Mark each day you have read together on the Project Read Calendar, (available at all Wyoming County libraries) return your completed calendar to the library each month and choose a free paperback or board book for your home library!
