The Portage County Public Library is happy to offer a special early literacy program called 1000 Books Before Kindergarten! 1000 BB4K is a nationwide program designed for children (from birth through Kindergarten) and their parents. The goal is for each child to read (or listen to) 1000 books before they start Kindergarten in order to prepare them for school and a lifetime of literacy. Join us for the 2017/2018 kickoff party! Interested and current participants are invited. Graduates will be honored for their hard work.
