All kids Kindergarten through Grade 3: Do you love to read? Do you love prizes and surprises? If so, be a Reading Super Star! Join Brockway Library’s Super Star Reader 100 Club!

Brockway Library now participates in the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten Program for newborns to kids entering Kindergarten.

Any child from birth until he or she enters kindergarten is invited to participate in 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten! Your first 100 books will count toward this! Prizes will be awarded after each 100 books read! It can take a few months or a few years; the program is self-paced and will depend on how often you read together. Keep track of all the titles you have read; the Library has a suggested list of books your child should hear before kindergarten. Call the Library at 305-758-8107 for more information.
