TALK, Text and Learn Before Kindergarten

We know little ones learn best through daily interactions with parents and caregivers. But busy schedules can make it hard to find time to create quality learning experiences. Michigan libraries are here to help! TALK sends easy activity ideas that build pre-literacy skills starting from birth up to age five. Activities also build STEM and social emotional skills, to help parents make sure their children are fully prepared for a successful school experience. You can easily register by texting TALK to 75547 to start receiving texts.

1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

Parents and caregivers! On behalf of the 1,000 Books Foundation and the Roseville Public Library, we challenge you to participate in this FREE program which encourages you to read 1,000 books with your child before he or she starts kindergarten.

Why is reading so important?  Books help children develop language abilities, enhance social skills and enrich lives, plus reading is fun! The concept is simple, the rewards are priceless.  Read a book (any book) to your newborn, infant, and/or toddler.  The goal is to have read 1,000 books before your child starts kindergarten.  Does it sound hard?  Not really if you think about it.  If you read just 1 book a night, you will have read about 365 books in a year.  That is 730 books in two years and 1,095 books in three years.  If you consider that most children start kindergarten at around 5 years of age, you have more time than you think, so get started!

Pick up Program Instructions and Reading Tips, a suggested reading list and a booklet to record your books from the Youth Services Department.

Book Bundles

We’ve created a way to get some “surprise” books to you based on your child’s interest.  Simply fill in the form provided here. Then, the children’s librarians will select five books and place them on hold for you to pick up.  Choose up to three topics or themes but know that due to demand not all choices may be available.  We hope that you and your children will discover some new favorites as you enjoy reading these books!
