Shared reading is the best way to help babies, toddlers, and preschoolers develop the important early literacy skills they need to learn how to read independently later on. The more books children ages 0–5 hear, the more prepared they will be to learn how to read. It’s never too early to start.
 
1000 Books Before Kindergarten is a new reading program for young children. Although 1000 books sounds like a lot, it’s only three shared reading sessions a day for a year. Here's how it works:

Register here or in Kids’ World beginning September 8.
• Start reading and counting!
• Drop by Kids’ World to check in and receive prizes. 
• The library will host a 1000 Books Celebration in May 2015, but the program doesn’t end until your child enters kindergarten. 
 

Helping your child develop early literacy begins with cuddling up and sharing a good book. Research shows that children become readers on the lap of a caring adult. Join us as we reach for 1000!

Chicago author and historian Richard C. Lindberg will take you on a tour of famous crime scenes and introduce you to a rogues' gallery of crooks, killers, corrupt politicians and n'er-do-wells spanning nearly 150 years of Chicago history. From the 1870s, when gambler-politician Michael C. McDonald helped forge a criminal empire and the underpinnings of Chicago's Democratic Machine, through the heyday of the old South Side "badlands" known as the "Levee," to the era of John Dillinger, Al Capone, and some modern day criminals, Lindberg weaves city history and infamy into a compelling story. Lindberg has appeared on many cable television programs including Cities of the Underworld, American Justice, Deadly Women, Masterminds, and many others. He is the author of 15 published books.
 
Date and time: Tuesday, March 22, 7 p.m.
Location: Hendrickson Room
