Grayson Frahm with his award at the Plainview Library.

Saturday, October 22, Grayson Frahm, son of Weston and Holly Frahm, was given a celebration party at the Plainview Public Library. 

Frahm’s family participated in the 1000 Books before Kindergarten program.  He, and his family, completed the challenge in August, right before he started kindergarten at Plainview Elementary.  

The 1000 Books Foundation is a Nevada non-profit public charity which operates the nationwide (and in Canada) 1000 Books Before Kindergarten challenge.  The concept is simple, the rewards are priceless.  Read a book (any book) to your newborn, infant, and/or toddler. The goal is to have read 1,000 books  before the child  starts kindergarten.  The 1000 Books Foundation provides useful information and resources to parents and caregivers and enables libraries, schools, churches, and other non-profit entities to host 1000 Books Before Kindergarten challenges in their local community.

Plainview Public Library has participated in the program for many years. When a new child is born in Plainview, the library gives a gift to the parents with a book and the information about this program.  The parent then logs the books read online and the youth librarian keeps track of the books. Currently, 15 children are signed up to accomplish the challenge, including ones who will start kindergarten anywhere from 2023- 2026.  

For more information, or to sign up a child, contact the youth librarian, Tammie Korth, at the Plainview Public Library.
