All Parents/Guardians must present valid government issued ID upon entering the school building and they must use the SchoolGate Guardian computer system in the office before entering the school hallways. If a parent/guardian does not have required ID, they will not be allowed to remain in the building or on school property. Thank you.

Do you have an upcoming kindergartner? (see flyer below)

***********************************************************************************

The concept is simple, the rewards are priceless. Read a book (any book) to your newborn, infant, and/or toddler. The goal is to have read 1,000 books before your precious one starts kindergarten. Does it sound hard? Not really if you think about it. If you read just 1 book a night, you will have read about 365 books in a year. That’s 730 books in two years and 1,095 books in three years! If you consider that most children start kindergarten around 5 years old, you have more time thank you think to get started.

To participate in this program with Blackwater Regional Library visit any of our locations to get your first reading log. Once you finish that first log, turn it in and get the next. Continue until you’ve reached 1000! The librarians will even have a special surprise for you when you turn in each log!

You may also visit 1000 Books Before Kindergarten to print your own reading log if you are unable to visit the library.
