1,000 Books Before Kindergarten is such a great program, and develops a love of reading in many youngsters. But what happens after they get into Kindergarten? Check out the ongoing challenge “500 Books Before Middle School” on the Carroll Public Library’s Beanstack app. We can help you get signed up or you can do a paper sign-up in the library if that’s easier for you, too. This program helps keep kids interested in reading which will help them be stronger readers as they progress through elementary school and into middle school.
