2. Start logging books on paper or on the "1,000 Books Before Kindergarten" app on iTunes or for android devices.


3. Bring the log to the library upon each milestone (50, 100, 200 books, etc.) to receive an award.


4. Any child who reaches 1,000 books will have his/her picture posted on the BCCLS (Bergen County Cooperative Library System) website (with parent/guardian permission of course) and receive a special invitation to a BCCS-wide party.
