During the COVID-19 pandemic, we are suspending all in-person library programs, including 1000 Books Before Kindergarten. Instead, we are asking that you please continue tracking your child’s reading. Email Miss Val at email@example.com with any milestones you reach, along with a photo of your child holding a printed or handwritten sign showing the milestone for posting online. They can also hold a book if you’d like. If you would rather, you may message the library through Facebook with the above information. When the library reopens, you may bring your child in for their stickers and books, so be sure to have milestone information ready for your next visit. Please follow us on Facebook to keep up with our programs. You may also watch for articles on fortscott.biz concerning our upcoming virtual programs. We look forward to serving you again when the library reopens to the public.
Fort Scott Public Library offers an early literacy program: 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten! Children from birth through kindergarten are invited to participate. Upon registration via phone or in person, participants receive a reading record. Each complete reading of a story that the child hears counts toward their 1,000 books, and participants receive a sticker, free picture book, and new reading log at each 100-book milestone. Call, message, or visit us for more information on this exciting program. You may also visit this link: 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten for more information or to install a free app, helpful for tracking books read. Join the program and improve your child’s chance of success today!
