Summer Reading 2018
Summer Reading is designed to encourage kids to read with fun incentives.
Sign up starts June 4, 2018!
How it works:
Kids can register for summer reading at any time during the summer after June 4th, At sign-up they get their choice of dog tag from lots of different colors and designs, for every book they read after sign-up they get a bead to put onto their dog tag.
After reading one book kids get their name into the drawing for their choice of a big summer reading prize, this year the choices are between a jumbo sized pool float, a minecraft lego set, a camping tent, an art set and a giant pack of playdough.
Kids too young to read can also participate by having someone read to them.

Story time is geared towards kids ages 2-5, but many older and younger siblings come each week. Children can bring in a favorite item to share and they can also dress up according to each week’s theme.
1,000 Book Before Kindergarten
1000 Books Before Kindergarten is a program for kids age 0-6 whose goal is to help you and your child get ready for kindergarten by reading! Any book read to your child counts towards our goal of 1000 books. It could be read here at storytime, at home, at preschool, with mom or dad, grandma or grandpa. Really any book that is read to your child counts! The purpose of the program is to help your child gain the skills they will need in order to learn how to read when they enter kindergarten.
How it works:
- Come in to the library to sign up and receive your information sheet and reading log.
- Take books home to read with your child, marking your reading log for each book you read.
- When you have read your first 100 books, bring your child and his/her reading log in to get a stamp and to put a book worm on our “Woodville Bookworms” wall.
- For every additional 100 books you read come into the library with your child and his/her reading log to get a stamp and to continue moving their bookworm towards 1000 Books.
- When you have completed all 1000 books your child will receive a hardcover book to keep. They will also be photographed as a “Bookworm of Fame”.
If you would like more information about what else you can do to get your child ready to read in kindergarten, please stop in and ask. We would love to help.
Don’t think you can do it? If you read just one book before bed for three years you will have read over 1000 books!
