1000 Books Challenge

Welcome to the 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten Challenge!

A reading challenge for kids age 4 and under, presented by Lubbock Public Library and the Friends of the Lubbock Library.

How to participate:

  • Print log #1 and begin reading aloud! For each book read to your child, color in one of the shapes on the log. After all of the shapes are filled in (100 books!), present the completed log to any Lubbock Public Library Location for a prize and the next log.
  • For each log completed, your child will receive one prize. At the completion of the final log (books 901-1000), your child will receive a book and a save the date card for an upcoming celebration.
  • Attempt to complete ALL 1000 books before your child starts Kindergarten!
  • Please share and post pictures of your child reading, or them posing with a completed log, to our social media pages (@lubbocklibrary) using the hashtag #LBK1000.
Questions? Comments? We’ve provided our contact information on the back of the log, for easy reference.

Happy Reading!

*Parents who start the program online will not receive a bookmark or magnet. If you would like the bookmark and magnet, stop by your closest Lubbock Library location to pick up the 1000 Books packet instead.
