Kindergartner joins TLC’s 1,000 Book Club

portrait of kindergarten student with long blonde hairA great big congratulations to kindergartner Amelia Lennon, the newest member of TLC’s 1,000 Book Club!

Lennon took advantage of TLC’s lending library, which makes backpacks filled with books available to students to read outside of the regular school day. Lennon read all 1,000 books that are available. Students and their parents can sign the books out at any time. They are available in TLC’s lobby.

The lending library supports the school’s Pick A Reading Partner initiative. Students are challenged each month to read at least six books with their reading partners.

The entire school receives incentives for hitting their reading goals every month, but individual students are honored when they go above and beyond and reach milestones. The number of books they read are tallied and accumulate across grade levels.
