The Bill Memorial Library, in partnership with the Riverfront Children’s Center in Groton, is pleased to announce the commencement of the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten program. Beginning Monday, September 18, families are invited to come to the library and pick up a registration packet containing program information and reading logs. This free program encourages parents to read 1000 books with their newborn, toddler, or preschool child before he or she starts kindergarten, with the library providing small incentives for each milestone met. This program is designed for children from birth to age 5 and is partially funded by The Friends of The Bill Memorial Library. For more information, please stop by the library or call 860-445-0392.
