How You and Your Child Can Read 1000 Books Before Kindergarten!

Reading out loud to your preschool-aged child is one of the most satisfying experiences you can have with them. Did you know that this same experience is the most important predictor of school success for your child?

As part of our commitment to early literacy in Grand Traverse County, the Traverse Area District Library (TADL) invites you to participate in 1000 Books Before Kindergarten at any of our member and branch libraries. 1000 Books Before Kindergarten is a self-paced, year-round program aimed at getting children ready to read by the time they enter kindergarten.
