Megan Knight and her sons, twins Gavin and Tyler, 6, and Casey, 2, frequent the Highland branch of the Medina County District Library. This year, the system joined other libraries across the region in providing program 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten. The national literacy initiative encourages parents and caregivers to introduce reading activities to their children.
Knight’s son Casey was the first in the branch to have read 500 books.
“This is a good motivator,” Knight says about the program. She adds it also gets her other two sons involved, as they like to read board books to their little brother.
“By the time we get done with these books, it will be a good reading foundation for him,” she says.
