Visit the Peterborough Town Library now to get your family started on the NH 1000 BOOKS BEFORE KINDERGARTEN program!

The Peterborough Town Library has launched an early literacy initiative that encourages families to read to their young children and to use the resources of their town library. The program, NH 1000 Books before Kindergarten, is designed to provide parents with the tools and encouragement they need to read 1,000 books to their little ones, before they reach kindergarten. Studies have shown that a child’s brain develops most rapidly before the age of three and children who are read to have bigger vocabularies when they enter school.
