1000 Books: What Else?

One of the benefits of doing a 1000 Books program in Wisconsin is knowing that you are offering something similar to other libraries, but with your own customized features.  In addition to aligning your program with your library's mission statement, your 1000 Books program can be tailored to work for you, your library, and the families who you serve. If your library doesn't have room for a wall of fame, perhaps participants who read 1000 titles get a ceremonial handshake from the director, a sticker on their library card, and their photo in the paper.  Small and simple efforts can make a big difference in the lives of young readers and their families!
