The Okanagan Regional Library is pleased to announce a wonderful way to make sure your child enjoys some of the best children’s books available at the library!
Beautiful booklists of 100 Books to Read Together Before Kindergarten are available at all branches for parents and caregivers. These booklists have a literature-based activity and a small prize associated with them. Each book on the list was carefully selected by youth services librarians from across the region.
Parents are encouraged to do the following activities with their children aged 0 to 5:
1. Read all 100 books listed and check them off as they do (there is no time limit).
2. Attend at least one storytime at their local library branch.
3. Get a library card for their child.
5. Once completed, go to their library branch to show the booklist to a staff member and receive a small prize for their family.
Early exposure to books and reading have a multiplying effect on children’s success throughout their school years. Why not enjoy reading with your child now and install that life-long love of reading in them!
Special thanks to the Friends of the Library who have generously covered much of the cost for this fun initiative.
