1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

This is the Milton Public Library’s year-round reading program for babies and toddlers up to age five.

1,000 Books Before Kindergarten is a national movement that encourages parents to bond with their children through reading together, and helps young readers develop a lifelong love of books and learning from an early age.

This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library, and in part by a grant from the Milton Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.

From time to time we offer month-long challenges for all ages!
