Reading to your child is one of the best ways to prepare them to enter Kindergarten ready to read. Use our 1,001 Books Before Kindergarten program to reach your reading goals and earn prizes! Now, for the first time, you can track your reading online using the Beanstack app (iOS/Google Play) or website. Once you've created your Beanstack account, choose the 1,001 Books program and use your Algonquin Library card to register. When you reach milestones, visit either Library location to pick up your prizes or call to arrange for pickup at the Harnish drive-up window. Already participating, but want to start tracking online? Contact the Youth Services Department at 847-458-6060 ext 135 to have your previous reading added to your Beanstack account. An Algonquin Library Card is required to register for this program.
