The 1000 Books before Kindergarten app is being sunsetted or discontinued on December 31, 2021. This means the app will no longer be available in the iTunes or Google Play app stores. When this app was developed in 2015, there were not many options available for tracking children’s reading. MCFLS has been very proud to have been able to support and offer this app with the great help of the Bridges Library System. Have no fear, however, because all Wisconsin libraries have access to the Beanstack reading tracker. Even better is the fact that this app includes a module for 1000 Books before Kindergarten. Beanstack is free and encourages reading to provide a solid foundation for learning success over time.
Please note that the web page for 1000 Books Before Kindergarten is still available and active! It can be found at https://1000booksbeforekindergarten.org. Check with your local library to inquire about their early reading program! Here are informational documents from some of our members:
- Greendale Public Library
- Franklin Public Library
- Shorewood Public Library
- St. Francis Public Library
- Wauwatosa Public Library
- Whitefish Bay Public Library
Thank you for supporting the 1000 Books before Kindergarten app for the last several years. If you want to use an app to track your reading, please consider moving to the Beanstack app at this time.
