1000 Books before Kindergarten has started at Fremont Public Library for ages birth-pre-kindergarten. For Fremont cardholders only, this reading program is an excellent way to build a love for stories and create a foundation for reading and school success. Before starting to read, children need exposure to rich language, background knowledge, a base of expectations regarding the format of stories, and a need to associate reading with enjoyment.
How is reading helpful?
1000 books equals:
How the Challenge Works:
Each time you read a book with your child, color one train car in your reading log. Remember, if you read the same book over and over again, it counts each time. Stories read to your child at daycare or preschool, at the Library’s Storytimes, or at grandma’s house count, too! Every time you read 100 books, bring your reading log to the library to add a sticker to the train mural at the Youth Services desk. When you reach a milestone, bring your reading log to the Library to collect your prize! Read 1,000 books before kindergarten and your child will receive a free book of their very own and a Super Reader cape.
The Summer Library Club at Fremont Public Library is gearing up! Visit the library six times between June 16 and July 27 and receive a free book, courtesy of the Friends of the Library, and coupons. This is for ages birth-6th grade and all children are welcome to participate. This is a great incentive to visit the library this summer so stop on by!
Join us every Saturday from 1:00pm-4:00pm for your chance to catch 'em all!
A Pokémon League is a fun and casual environment where people can meet to play the Pokémon Trading Card Game/Video Game and trade cards. Players earn rewards for the games they play, usually exclusive Pokémon cards and badges. Because fun and participation are the focus of a Pokémon League, players earn the same awards no matter whether they win or lose the games they play.
Pokémon games encourage people to learn. Reading skills are required in most Pokémon games, as are math skills, strategic thinking and problem solving. Through collecting and trading, Pokémon games also encourage sharing. It’s a game than can be played by children as young as five (with some help), but can also be challenging for adults. It’s a great game for family members to play together. It doesn’t take up much space, so it’s great to pack for family trips. It also emphasizes character development through the focus on sportsmanship and personal improvement.
