Reading Programs

1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

This program is based upon solid evidence from research findings that the more children ages 0-5 hear books read to them.

What to do:
Enroll your child at the Wimberley Village Library and receive your free Book Bag and 1000 Books journal. Fill the bag up with lots of great books to check out and read, read, read!
Once you’ve filled out your log, bring it to the Circulation Desk. We will punch your progress card and give you another log to fill out. Each log represents 100 books read. There will be a total of a total of to fill out.
Your child will receive a small gift after each 100 books read, a book of their own after 500 books read and a special t-shirt at the completion of 1000 books read.
Along the way, we will have several special events for participating families.

Free Reading Program

The Free Reading Program is sponsored by the Wimberely Rotary Club to give parents and teachers an all-new way to let their children and students read anywhere and anytime without a physical book.

 

Our goal is to enhance the literacy skills of English language learners of all ages. The program will help improve English reading comprehension, grammar, vocabulary and much more.

Summer Incentive Reading Program

Every summer the library offers an Incentive Reading Program. The research is clear that children who don’t read during the summer can lose up to three months of reading progress and that loss has a cumulative effect.  The incentive reading program is available for children ages 1 years though high school.  Children read or listen to books, fill out their reading logs and redeem them for prizes at the library.  Every summer there is a variety of incentive prizes offered, ranging from coupons for a free ice cream cone at The Wimberley Cafe, a one day pass to the Mckenna Children’s Museum or a movie pass to the Corral Theatre.  Last summer over 1100 reading logs were redeemed!

 

More information on the summer Incentive Reading Program will be available in May.
