1000 Books Before Kindergarten

a deer reading a book

For all kids from birth up through entering kindergarten.

The single most important thing you can do to prepare your children to read is to read to them every day. Research proves that children need to hear 1000 books before they begin to learn to read independently.

Reading to children will: increase their vocabulary, increase their listening and narrative skills, help to instill in them self-awareness and confidence, impart an understanding of their place in the world.

Registration is required here at goffstownlibrary.com/calendar. After your child has read their first 100 books, one of the rewards and incentives for this program is a 1000 Books Before Kindergarten tote bag! Please email at any time if you have questions about this program during the stay-at-home order from Governor Sununu.

Download & Print: Title Log (for parents), and Color-In Log (for kids).

For more information, including an Early Literacy Practices for Parents download, please visit www.goffstownlibrary.com/1000books.

Hannaford Helps Reusable Bag Program

a Hannaford bagWe are excited to share that the Friends of the Goffstown Public Library has been selected to be a part of the Hannaford Helps Reusable Bag Program, which is designed to make it easy for customers to contribute to their local community while supporting the environment.

For the month of October, each time a $2.50 reusable Community Bag is purchased at the Hannaford located at 605 Mast Road, $1 will be donated to Friends of the Goffstown Public Library. This is a great way to raise awareness, support the environment, and fundraise for the Friends.

Spread the news to friends and family! Call, send emails, and post on social media. The more people who learn about the program and purchase the Community Bag during the month of October, the more money the Friends will raise.

To learn more about this program, please visit hannaford.bags4mycause.com.
Contributions help the Friends fully sponsor the Goffstown Public Library's Museum Pass Program - www.goffstownlibrary.com/passes and so much more. The Museum Pass Program enables library patrons free or reduced entry fees to various museums, state parks, and science institutions in NH such as the Children’s Museum, Currier Museum of Art, SEE Science Center, and Squam Lakes and, in the Boston area, institutions such as the Museum of Fine Arts, New England Aquarium, Isabella Stewart Gardener Museum, and Boston Children’s Museum.
