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.

Courageous Community Conversations: Can We Talk About Race?

Join the Conversation

In this time of the COVID-19 pandemic, the killings of George Floyd, Ahmaud Aubery, and Breonna Taylor, incidents in NH such as the arrest of Jean Ronald Saint Preux, and numerous slights in our own Greater Goffstown community have caused many of us to examine our beliefs about discrimination and racial justice. After having elected an African American as President, many people thought racism was behind us. Yet recent events seem to prove otherwise.

Join James McKim, President of NHNAACP and Cole Riel, NH State Representative, for a conversation about these recent events and what we might do to create a more welcoming and just community. Sponsored by the Goffstown Public Library and St. Matthew's Episcopal Church.

Registration is required at www.goffstownlibrary.com/calendar, we will meet remotely via Zoom and all registered participants will receive an email invitation with details about how to join the discussion.

This event is part of our Community Conversations series; please visit http://www.goffstownlibrary.com/communityconversation for more information.
