Reading Programs

Free Reading Program sponsored by wimberley rotary club

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. Questions? Email Carrie Campbell: carriec1970@gmail.com

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 year through high school.  Children read or listen to books, fill out their reading logs and redeem them for prizes at the library.
