Joining 1,001 Books Before Kindergarten is a great way to celebrate National Library Week!

  Freeman Library just awarded a 1,001 Books Before Kindergarten certificate to our beaming young reader to the left.    This fun program encourages literacy and library use by letting children color in a star for each time they read a book or have it read to them.  The children get a pamphlet with an animal picture to color and 100 stars to fill in.  There are 10 pamphlets to go through in the program.  At 1,001 books, the child will get a certificate of completion.  This program is free and families can do it at their own pace.   Libraries around the country will be celebrating National Library Week starting April 9 - what better way to kick off National Library Week than to visit Freeman Library and pick up a 1,001 Books Before Kindergarten pamphlet!
