The Morris Public Library supports the 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

Beginning October 1, 2018, families are invited to join the 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program at the Morris Public Library.

The 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program is a nationwide challenge that encourages parents and caregivers to regularly read aloud to their children. By reading just one book a night, families can reach the 1,000-book goal in three years and provide their children essential early literacy skills.

The program is available to all families with children (ages 0-5).

For more information, please call the library at 860-567-7440 or visit our website, www.morrispubliclibrary.net
