Special Programs & Events
Throughout the year we offer reading challenges or scavenger hunts through Beanstack. Login or register to find out about current programs which include the ongoing 1000 Books Before Kindergarten program.
Summer Reading Program
Every summer Woodland Public Library puts on a Summer Reading Program for all kids, teens and adults. In the Early Learners program, parents complete early literacy activities to earn a toy and a book for their child. For older children, they can read (or be read to) and participate in learning activities to earn prizes from a prize store and participate in an end-of-summer raffle. These incentives help boost reading and literacy activities during the summer, helping to keep minds learning year-round. We also feature free lunch for kids on weekdays as well as fun activities and performers for children during the summer program. All of the summer activities are free!
We have lots of other fun one-time events including a Halloween Party, DINOvember, a Holiday Party, Touch-a-Truck, and more! Check the calendar to be updated on upcoming events!
