1000 Books Before Kindergarten


The Monticello Public Library is launching our new 1000 Books Before Kindergarten Reading Challenge.

Read a book, any book (repeats are okay!) to your newborn, infant/toddler, or preschooler.

The goal is to read 1000 books before staring kindergarten. Anyone under the age of 5 can have a grown up sign up through Beanstack or visit the library in person for a special hardbound book that you can use for logging.


One book a night = 365 books in one year OR Ten books a week for two years, OR Twenty books a week for one year (that’s just 3 books a day!)

Kids can earn prizes and certificates with every 100 books they read. It's that simple!

If you have any questions, feel free to call us (608) 938-4011 or shoot us an email at mntpublib.info@gmail.com
