Faulkner County Library’s 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program is a fun, exciting, and free way to start your child on the path to success! 
Any child age birth to five years can participate. Just follow these steps:


  • Register: Sign up at the Conway branch or online at www.fcl.org. Pick up program materials at the library or print them from our web site.


  • Track Your Reading: Fill in a circle 1-50 & 50-100, write down each title, or log them on the app. Android & iPhone app instructions


  • Every Book Counts: Even if your child wants to hear the same book again and again, you can count it each time. You can also count the books your child hears in storytime, in daycare, in preschool, or with a friend or family member, as long as your child listens to the entire book. 


  • 100 Book Milestones: Each time you read 100 books, bring your reading record to the library or email it to mary@fcl.org to receive a special reward. You will get a new reading record for your next 100 books (if needed). 


  • 1,000 Books: You did it! We will have a celebration at the library. See your child’s name placed on the 1,000 Book Wall of Fame and get a free book. 


  • Keep On Reading: Don’t stop at 1,000! Keep on reading together; there’s more learning ahead!


Singing songs, saying rhymes, telling stories, and playing with your child are all great ways to build their literacy skills. Visit the Faulkner County Library – Conway branch often for Lapsit Babies, Mother Goose on the Loose, Preschool Storytime, and other free programs that are fun and educational for your little one. Visit the Vilonia Branch for Preschool Storytime and other children's programming.


Come find some great books to share with your child!


1,000 books may seem like a lot, but if you read just 1 book a night, you’ll meet your goal in less than 3 years. If you read 3 books a night, you could reach your goal in just 1 year! Ask our friendly staff for suggestions – we’re here to help you on your journey to 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten!


Happy Reading!
