Families are invited to join the 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program at the Lepper Public Library, 303 E. Lincoln Way.
Families with children from newborn to 5 years old are eligible for the challenge.
Registration for the free program is from 6 to 7 p.m. Aug. 11.
The event is a nationwide challenge that encourages parents and caregivers to regularly read aloud to their children.
By reading just one book a night, families can reach the 1,000-book goal in three years and provide their children with early literacy skills.
Sharing books with children promotes a lifelong love of books and reading.
