1000 booksThis January, resolve to read to your child!

MIDDLETOWN, NJ – Families are invited to join the 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program at Middletown Library this coming January. The 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program is a nationwide challenge that encourages parents and caregivers to regularly read aloud to their children. By reading just one book a night, families can reach the 1,000-book goal in three years and provide their children essential early literacy skills.

Registration begins January 1, 2016 and will be ongoing.



We treat each of our patients as part of the family at Atlantic Highlands Animal Hospital. We offer top-quality surgical and dental treatments for cats and dogs. For the best pet care in the Atlantic Highlands, NJ, call us at (732) 291-4400. https://www.atlantichighlandsvet.com

The program will officially launch on January 27th when participants will be invited to join us at a kick-off event at the Library and can begin logging books read to their child. 

Earn Rewards throughout the program for levels reached.
