1,000 Books before School

1000 books before school1,000 Books before School programme will begin at Gunnedah library in January 2014.
Even though this programme officially starts in January, parents can join their children at any time during the year.
By reading just one book each evening, the target of 1,000 books can be achieved in less than three years and the child will be set for a lifelong love of books and learning – a great outcome for an investment of three to five minutes each day, and not difficult at all.
Certificates will be awarded for reading 50, 100, 250, 500, 750 and then 1,000 books, so when the child starts school or preschool, not only will they have a handful of awards that they can show their classmates and teachers, but they will also have a head start in learning to read and write.
