Raise a Reader with Margaret Jones Public Library and Worth
County Primary School’s 1000 Books Before Kindergarten
This free program encourages you to read 1,000 books with your
child before he or she enters school. One of the best ways to encourage learning is to spend time sharing books every day.
Reading together helps develop important pre-reading skills that
provide a solid reading foundation—a key to school and learning
success. Plus, sharing stories together is fun!
Participation is so easy!
1. Register your child at Margaret Jones Public Library.
Your family will receive a book bag to keep upon
2. Record each book you read on your log. If you read a book
more than once, you can record it each time. Books read at
library storytime, at daycare or church also count!
3. When you finish 50 books, bring your reading log to the
library and receive a sticker. Begin your next reading
4. After finishing 1,000 books, your child will receive a
book. Best of all, your child will get a great jumpstart on success at school!

The Elementary and Secondary Education Assistance Act of 1965 (ESEA)[Section 1111 (6)(A)]
These regulations allow you to learn more about your child’s teachers’ training and credentials. We are happy to provide this
information to you. At any time, you may ask:
Whether the teacher met state qualifications and certification requirements for the grade level and subject he/she is teaching,
Whether the teacher received an emergency or conditional certificate through which state qualifications were waived, and
What undergraduate or graduate degrees the teacher holds, including graduate certificates and additional degrees, and
major(s) or area(s) of concentration. You may also ask whether your child receives help from a paraprofessional. If your
child receives this assistance, we can provide you with information about the paraprofessional’s qualifications.
Our staff is committed to helping your child develop the academic knowledge and critical thinking he/she needs to succeed
in school and beyond. That commitment includes making sure that all of our teachers and paraprofessionals are highly skilled.
