Out of this World Summer Reading and Learning at Baldwin Library!: Summer Reading Club

This year’s theme is “A Universe of Stories” for children birth through entering Grade 5.  Registration begins June 7 at our Summer Reading Kickoff Party and is ongoing throughout the summer and concludes on August 16. Children will earn tokens and tickets for time spent reading.  Each token may be entered in charity boxes of their choosing through our Read for those in Need program. Tickets can be entered for end-of-summer raffles.

The last day to log summer reading hours is Saturday, Aug. 17. 

Summer Reading is made possible through generous funding from the Kiwanis Club of Baldwin and Katie Chojnicki in memory of Margaret and Nick Gozik.

1,000 Books Before Kindergarten 
The concept is simple but the rewards are priceless! Read any book to your infant, toddler or preschooler — the goal is to have read 1,000 books before they enter the door of kindergarten!

Just reading 1 book a day is:

  • 365 books in a year
  • 730 in two years
  • 1,095 in three years!

You have plenty of time, so take advantage of this wonderful early literacy reading program!

Check out Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh’s Best Books for Babies, which contains materials to share with babies age birth to 18 months. This is a cooperative project of CLP, The Fred Rogers Company and Trying Together (formerly the Pittsburgh Association for the Education of Young Children.)
