Read your way toward kindergarten readiness! 1000 Books Before Kindergarten (1000B4K) is a self-guided, read-at-home program for all children, from birth up until the time they start school. The goal? For every child to be exposed to at least 1000 books before kindergarten. 

Sign up to receive a tracking booklet to keep track of all of the books you and your child read together. Earn badges and prizes along the way, and build a strong early literacy foundation to help get your child ready to read on their own. 

Bay County Library System runs 1000B4K on a continuous basis; the only deadline is your child’s kindergarten year! 1000B4K is a nationwide challenge that encourages parents and caregivers to regularly read aloud to their children. 


The library makes every effort to ensure our programs can be enjoyed by all. If you have any concerns about accessibility or need to request specific accommodations, please contact the library.

This program is designed for children and accompanying adults. Please plan to attend and be engaged with your child for this program. Drop offs will not be permitted.

Please alert staff to any food allergies.

Registration is required.  Please register in person, by phone, or online.
