Reading Challenge - 1000 Books Before School

1000 Books Before School is a self-directed program running throughout the year for preschoolers from age 0 until age 6.

Register at the library to collect a reading log, participate online, or with the Beanstack App, to log the books you read. Each time you reach a milestone, bring your email confirmation, or reading log, into Lane Cove Library, Greenwich Library, St Leonards Library, or The Yarn, Hunters Hill to receive a sticker for your 1000 Books Before School library bag.

All books count towards the final total, including books borrowed from the library, e-books read online, books watched on the Storybox Library, books listened to at Storytime and Baby Bounce, or shared with family and friends.
