The Santa Clarita Public Library has announced the release of a brand-new early literacy program, “1,000 Books Before Kindergarten.”
Created with the littlest residents of Santa Clarita in mind, this program will help guide parents, caregivers and teachers towards supporting and teaching children ages birth to kindergarten about the importance of reading by challenging them to finish 1,000 books before the start of kindergarten.
Five subjects are integrated into this innovative program, including singing, talking, reading, writing and playing. The library has created 2023 and 2024 yearly calendars filled with daily tasks that you and your child can complete together. From singing the A-B-C’s and solving puzzles to writing a poem and reading a new book, each activity will help strengthen comprehension, language and vocabulary skills. Also, be sure to visit your local library. At each branch there are programs and activities like crafts on the patio, Bilingual Storytime and more for participants.
Get involved in this free program and help your little ones become confident in reading, writing, talking, playing and more.
Whether you’re a parent, caregiver, aunt, uncle, grandparent or teacher, there is something for everyone. The “1,000 Books Before Kindergarten” calendar is currently available in English and located on the library’s website.
The library will have a Spanish version available in the near future.
