Reading Challenges

Summer Reading Challenge

Our annual Summer Reading Club is back and bigger than ever this year! Everyone who registers (yes, adults, too!) will get an exclusive WDM Library Summer Reading journal and a fun, library-themed sticker sheet. You’ll track your reading through the handy Beanstack app. Readers of any age who log more than 30 reading days will be entered to win exciting raffle prizes at the end of the summer! For information on registering groups (such as classes or daycares) please send a message to 

Registration opens on Monday, May 22. You may sign up online, the Beanstack app from the App store or Google Play, or by stopping by the Children's or Adult desks at the library. 

1000 Books Before Kindergarten (ongoing)

For parents and children ages 0-6

Read to succeed! The best and the brightest have parents who read to them. Register on our reading challenge website or use the Beanstack app for iOS or Android. Select the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten program and track the stories you share with your child. We all know how children love to hear the same stories over and over again, and re-readings are certainly welcome! When you reach 1000 books, come visit us at the Youth Services Desk and earn a free book for your home collection.
