1000 Books Before Kindergarten
According to researchers, reading aloud to children is the single most important activity for building knowledge required for eventual success in reading. In support of these efforts, the Altoona Public Library has a new early literacy program for families with children who have not entered kindergarten (ages 1-5). The ultimate goal of the program is for parents to read 1,000 books to their child before they enter school. For more information, click here or visit the library.
