The Baltimore County Public Library launched a new reading program on Monday: 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten.
- Thank you, Bob. New at 6:00, giving children more access to books in Baltimore County. The Public Library system is launching a new program called 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten. Experts say reading to your children and then having them read to you teaches speaking, listening, and communication skills. For every 100 books read, children will receive a special sticker. Those who hit the 1,000 books mark will receive a special completion prize. Libraries say no one is too young to sign up, and we have a link on WJZ.com.
