1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

1k Green Logo

Miss Mallory and Miss Nichole have been working on getting our libraries into more programs that help instill a love of reading at early ages. 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten is a wonderful non-profit organization that offers a few different ways for parents to get their littles involved in reading as early as possible!

Reading logs will be available at both library locations starting in 2022, and the apps are linked below!

We both are working up a progress system, so be sure to visit your preferred location for more information, and to let us know you’re starting up, so we can help celebrate each of your baby’s milestones!

We’d like to note that 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten has allowed us to use their trademarked logo and name.

Looking for age appropriate book recommendations? 

Check below, or ask at your library!




If you’re interested in signing up, but can’t make it in to either location, you can absolutely get started with the app, and information listed below!

Inquire Within with WVPB

West Virginia Public Broadcasting launched a new grant-funded initiative, Inquire Within, with libraries throughout the state, and we are excited to announce we are trying to become a sponsored participating library! Inquire Within provides libraries with programming (like STEM kits and extra educational information that can be used with our regular programming) linked to some PBS kid favorites, and so much more!

If you/your company are interested in learning more about sponsoring your local libraries, or know of a company that would be,  please stop in to the Ripley or Ravenswood locations! Sponsors must work with WVPB, but information on how to reach them is available with Miss Mallory and Miss Nichole!
