2020 Summer Reading

Imagine your story at the Woodville Community Library

For kids, teens and adults!

The library’s summer on-line reading program ended on August 7.  Congratulations to all our readers and those that won prizes in the end of the summer drawing.

There will be a new reading challenge coming for the Fall.  

 

Requests and Curbside pick-up

The library is open Monday – Saturday. If you are uncomfortable coming into the library staff will bring your items outside for you to pick up.

Call the library at 715-698-2430 or e-mail the library at woodpl@woodvillelibrary.org with the subject line of book request or pick-up request

Courier service is once again available between libraries, but items are being quarantined along each stop so expect longer than usual for items to arrive.

How to use the MORE catalog to request Woodville items

Requesting Local Materials Online

Until regular delivery among libraries resumes, items available in the pickup library’s local collection will be most readily available for curbside pickup.

Here’s the best way for patrons to find and request things they can pick up from a particular library:

  1. Go to the MORE Catalog: more.lib.wi.us and log in
  2. Enter a search term (remember, “movies” and “books” are valid keyword search terms)
  3. Select the “Available Now” filter on the left side to expand it
  4. Select the pickup library
  5. Search results will be limited to titles available and holdable at the pickup library
  6. Tip: to exclude ebooks and audiobooks, open the “Titles I can…” filter and select “Borrow and take home”
  7. Select “Place a Hold” and verify your pickup library
  8. Tip: Turn on “Active Filters” so subsequent searches retain limits

Preschool Storytime

Story-time will be on hiatus for the summer.  Story-time will be returning.  The library is considering some options to bring story-time to our community.  One of the options we are considering is a closed Facebbook group.  Miss Becky will be returning as our story teller.

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:

  1. Come in to the library to sign up and receive your information sheet and reading log.  You can now sign up through Beanstack  http://woodvillelibrary.beanstack.org
  2. Take books home to read with your child, marking your reading log for each book you read.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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!
