Early Literacy Programs   arrow

Children start learning the skills they need to become successful readers right away from birth. August County Library is excited to offer early literacy reading initiatives to help support your family as you follow the path to becoming readers.

With the endorsement of Augusta County Schools, Augusta County Library is challenging parents to read 1,000 books to their children before they enter kindergarten. This program is open to all children, ages birth to five. 

Participating is easy. Track the books you read with your child on reading logs provided by the library. We’ll help you celebrate every 50 books on a flower with your child’s name in the library.  And, we’ll collect and assemble the logs into a keepsake booklet to present to your child when you reach 1,000 books!

Get started today! Download and print the welcome sheet or ask for a copy at any Augusta County Library location.  

Rubber Ducky Reading Club


Join the club! Our award-winning Rubber Ducky Club has become an annual event at the Augusta County Library.  Open to children ages birth to five years old, this club is designed to promote early literacy.

With the help of parents or caregivers, club members complete 12 fun activities listed on an activity sheet. When completed, turn the activity sheet in to the library to collect an adorable little rubber ducky.  Keep going and see how many different ducks you can collect!  The Rubber Ducky Club will return in September.
