A Michiana library is promoting reading by giving parents a challenge. Librarians hope you will read a thousand books to your child by the time they start kindergarten.

It's part of the 1,000 Book Club through the Warsaw Community Public Library

A library director talked to the Stacey Page Online
about the program.

By signing up, parents commit to reading a thousand books to their child. Registering for the program is free and families can keep track of their progress through 100 book log sheets. As you read, simply write down the title of the book.

Once each 100 book log sheet is complete, you bring it back to the library where children receive a prize and certificate.

When a child reaches the thousand book mark, they will receive a free book and book bag to use during return visists to the library.

For more information you can call the library at 574-267-6011.
