Lillian read 1,000 books before kindergarten!

January 20, 2023 – Lillian Hartschuh, daughter of Jacob and Dawn Hartschuh, has completed the 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program at the Upper Sandusky Community Library.

Lillian started the 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten on January 2, 2019, and reached the goal on December 29, 2022. Lillian and her younger brother, Micah, come to the library quite often to check out a big pile of books and to attend StoryTime.

Lillian likes making apple soup at her kitchen set, swinging, and jumping on her trampoline. Her favorite food is spaghetti, and she likes the colors pink and purple. She will be starting kindergarten for the 2023-2024 school year.

Any child from birth until they enter kindergarten can participate. Each child will receive a log to record the books with incentives being given along the way. As you read to your children, they will form a link between books and what they love most – your voice and your closeness.
