1000 Books before Kindergarten

1000 Books before Kindergarten is a statewide program that launched in mid-October 2019. The concept is simple ... Read books daily to your infant and/or toddler and chart your progress with the goal of having read 1000 books before your precious one starts kindergarten. 

Go to www.billingslibrary.org/1000Books for more information and sign up your infant and toddler today The interest in the "1000 Books before Kindergarten" program was amazing! And as of August 2020, we already have a dozen children who have reached that 1000 books goal.

GivingTuesday is a global day of giving that helps raise awareness of charitable organizations and causes and amplifies the generosity of donors.  

Thanks to our amazing Giving Tuesday donors last year, we raised almost $5500 for the purchase of books for the Children's section of the Library.

 This year we are hoping to raise equally as much with donations going to the purchase of Mobile Hotspot devices and data. By having these devices that can be checked out through the Library, those community members who don't have internet capabilities available will be able to get FREE Wifi access!
