Additional Summer Programs
1,000 Books Before Kindergarten
Track Your Reading & Show Us Your ProgressKeep track of each book you read in your keepsake logbook or online. We know children love repetition and it helps them learn, so feel free to log the same favorites every time you read them.
For every 200 books you read, bring your reading log to any library branch to receive a special prize. You officially complete the program when you have read 1,000 books and you'll receive a free book!
Special Program for the Summer!
Participate in our 100 book summer challenge by logging your books online, printing your own reading log, or by calling 605-367-8700. Complete the challenge and choose a finisher's prize with your child. Signing up for the 100 books mission will register and count towards the 1,000 books program, so your child can continue to read for prizes. Ask a library staff member for more information.
