A local non-profit is taking up in a nationwide effort to encourage reading in kids before they head off to kindergarten.

Archway Programs has teamed up with 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten, a national non-profit that works to provide early literacy programs to children across the country.

The pilot program will launch its first satellite location called 1,000 Books Reading Nook at Archway Program's Washington Township location.

The 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program is a nationwide initiative, with a goal of promoting reading readiness for kids entering kindergarten, while also instilling a lifelong love of reading and encouraging parent and child bonding.

The new reading nook is designed for children between the ages of birth to five years old.
