Early Literacy Programs

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. As your child enjoys 1,000 books, they will learn the vocabulary and interest in books that is needed for kindergarten. 

Participating is easy. Register your child ages birth to five at any Augusta County Library location. Track the books you read with your child on reading logs provided by the library. We’ll help you celebrate every 50 books as your child places a sticker on a train at the library.  And, earn a train whistle and conductor’s hat for 500 and 1,000 hours, respectively.
