CLNH On-the-Move Book Kits

CLNH On-the-Move Book Club Kits are sets of multiple copies of children’s books that can be used for book discussion programs in New Hampshire public libraries. Libraries around the state host these kits, which can be borrowed by other libraries through interlibrary loan. These kits have a minimum of 10 copies of a title.

Libraries with at least ten (10) or more multiple copies of a children’s book title can add these copies as a “kit” to NHU-PAC by completing the survey form below. Libraries wishing to borrow kits can do a keyword search in NHU-PAC for “CHILIS On-the-Move” or they can click on the CHILIS On-the-Move links below for the complete list.

You can see the titles already in NHU-PAC at CLNH On-the-Move.

The title list link is also included on the Librarians Tools/ Readers Resource tab of NHU-PAC.

If you wish to add a kit to the CLNH On-the-Move Book Club, please complete this survey.


1000 Books Before Kindergarten

NH 1000 Books Before Kindergarten is an early literacy initiative that encourages families to read to their young children and to use the resources of their public libraries. The project is based on the national 1000 Books Before Kindergarten initiative. NH 1000 Books Before Kindergarten is sponsored by CHILIS and the NH State Library, and supported by the Center for the Book at the NH State Library, the Jack and Dorothy Byrne Foundation, the NH Academy of Family Physicians, and NH Family Voices.

If your library would like to launch NH 1000 Books Before Kindergarten in your community, you may use any of the resources below. Many of the resources may be customized to include the name of your public library, and some can be edited to add or delete relevant information. If you customize or edit a resource, please include the NH 1000 Books Before Kindergarten logo on all of the revised resources. If you create your own posters or ads, please add the NH 1000 Books Before Kindergarten logo as well as the logos of our sponsors.  (A high-resolution deer logo along with an image of our sponsors’ logos  is included below.) All resources, including the canvas bags, are intended to be given to library patrons without charge.
