Can YOU read 500 books before you start middle school? (We’re sure you can!) Anyone in kindergarten through 5th grade can sign up for this brand-new challenge. Just register online at www.guilderlandlibrary.beanstack.org, and then come to the library to pick up your personal “500 Books” folder at the Youth Desk.
What can you read? Anything you like, even books you listen to! Just log your books online or on paper, and you’ll earn cool prizes for every 50 books you read.
Your folder gives you lists of suggested reading, everything from “Read through New York” and “Imagining the Past,” to “Readers Go Batty” and “Seasons Readings.” So go online right now and register at guilderlandlibrary.beanstack.org. Not only will you read a lot of great stories, you’ll also win prizes for each level you reach. Happy Reading!
