New York Times 100 Notable Books of 2014  is a very useful
fiction site. It provides a brief bio of authors
and lists their titles by publication date and
organizes titles by series. The series
information is especially helpful for patrons
who want to read an author's works in
order. Some authors have more that one
series going on at the same time!

1,000 Books Before
is a nationwide
program that promotes early
literacy through reading aloud
to infants, toddlers and preschoolers.

Register your pre-kindergarten child
at the library and receive a folder which
will include an American Library
“Every Child Ready to Read” brochure, an early literacy
handout by author Jim Treleasse, a book record log sheet,
and a Read and Grow magnet.

When the first 100 books are read bring the completed book record to the
library and your child will receive a  Read and Grow Club T-shirt
and a sticker. You’ll receive another book record sheet. Every book
counts, and it’s OK to read a book many times and count it each time
you read it.When 1,000 books are read, your child will receive a
brand-new book with a nameplate and a Read and Grow book bag.
