Rocket Into Reading at The Palmdale City Library in 2018

PALMDALE – The Palmdale City Library’s 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program, which began in 2017, is continuing for 2018 at the Library, located at 700 E. Palmdale Blvd.

1,000 Books Before Kindergarten is a nationwide program that encourages parents with children up to age 5 to read to them regularly. Keeping track makes it fun and keeps families invested in the process.

“Pick up your free 1000 Books Before Kindergarten folder to get you started,” said Library Associate Shay Hawken. “Each time you read a book with your child, write down the title in your log. Each time you read 100 books, take your log to the library to get a sticker and a prize for certain milestones. You also get to add your child’s name to our Reading Rocket each time you read 100 books!”

The Palmdale City Library is open seven days a week. Hours of operation are Monday through Thursday from 10 am to 8 pm; Friday and Saturday from 10 am to 5 pm; and Sunday from 1 to 5 pm.

For more information, please call the Palmdale City Library at 661/267-5600 or TDD 267-5167, or visit
