November 2022 Youth Services Events

1000 Books Before Kindergarten

Registration Form.

The concept is simple, the rewards are priceless. Read a book (any book) to your newborn, infant, and/or toddler. The goal is to have read 1,000 books (yes you can repeat books) before your precious one starts kindergarten. Does it sound hard? Not really if you think about it. If you read just 1 book a night, you will have read about 365 books in a year. .

Register for the program 1000 Books before Kindergarten with us, and then start reading to child. Print and fill out the registration form here and email: or send it snail mail to us at BCPL Youth Services 185 Court Street, Binghamton, NY 13901. After reading 100 books either take a picture and email it to us or come in and we will accept it. Prizes awarded at different levels.

Youth Services Department staff is very grateful to the Friends of the Library for providing the funding that makes these events so successful.  Without their support, our programs would not be possible, and we appreciate all of the hard work that they do.
