500 by Five

Sign up today for 500 x 5!

Calvert Library’s “500 by Five” initiative inspires Calvert’s children to read 500 books by 5 years old.

Reading with young children on a daily basis is a lifetime gift for everyone that:

  • builds a stronger relationship with your child
  • increases basic speech and communication skills
  • improves logical thinking
  • increases vocabulary
  • enhances concentration and discipline
  • helps ease transitions to major milestones or other potentially stressful experiences
  • promotes school readiness
  • encourages a love of learning

And, let’s not forget, it is just plain fun! 

Parents: Sign up to keep track of your 500 by Five books in order to earn your Certificate of Completion and take your place on our Wall of Fame.
