Raising a Reader – 1000 Books before Kindergarten

The Novi Public Library and the Novi Community School District are partnering in a year round preschool reading initiative supporting parents and caregivers in the goal of reading 1,000 books with their children before they enter kindergarten. It is never too early to begin developing enjoyable reading experiences with children and contribute toward their readiness to learn to read when they enter school. Summer is a great time to begin or continue reading toward the goal of 1,000 books!  Thank you to the Friends of the Novi Library, Vibe Credit Union, Novi Rotary, and Novi Community School District for sponsoring this program!
