1000 Books Before Kindergarten

Parents, Grandparents or Caregivers can sign up in the children’s room for this self paced program. Each time your child reads 100 books they will be rewarded with a book and a sticker. Upon completion of the program, a gift certificate to our Book Cellar is awarded.

Did you know that reading to your child is one of the most powerful ways to boost his or her brain power? By reading 1,000 books before kindergarten together you help your child learn pre-reading skills such as understanding the sounds letters make, developing a bigger vocabulary and better success decoding words – all important skills that prepare your child for learning to read and entering kindergarten.

  • Ingrid J. Martland Fund

    Each year children entering Kindergarten in the Region 14 school district are gifted new books in a backpack. This generous fund was founded by Ingrid J. Martland in celebration of her lifelong love of reading.

    Ingrid J. Martland had a twenty-two year career at Mitchell Elementary School in Woodbury, where nearly all of her students excelled in math and vocabulary. Ingrid will be forever remembered for her annual donation of a new book to each Region 14 kindergarten student via the Woodbury Library and the Connecticut Community Foundation in perpetuity.
