2020 Summer Reading

Imagine your story at the Woodville Community Library

For kids, teens and adults!

Our summer programs allow families and readers of all ages to log and read books for prizes and badges. The Summer Reading Program is through Beanstack, which is our free online service that allows you to log your reading.

It is never too early to start your little one on the read to reading! The 1000 books before kindergarten program encourages you to spend time sharing books with your little ones while building critical early literacy skills before he or she starts school. Earn badges along the way to the special completion prize. Start your child’s journey today. Show us how much you love to read by participating in one of our programs!

Requests and Curbside pick-up

Library hours for this service:

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

There is no courier service at this time so you are limited to items that are available at the Woodville Library.  You can use the MORE catalog to see what items are available at Woodville or call and staff will check for you.

Requested items will be bagged and placed outside in a bin marked pick-up location or staff can place the item into your trunk.  Staff are required to practice social distancing.  Library items do not need to be returned until the libraries in Wisconsin are reopened.  The current due date is set for July 1.

 

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.  Check out the Page Turner Stories available on Facebook.

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 – Starting June 22
  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!
