Summer Library Program

The national summer library program theme for 2017 is:


STARTING JUNE 21, register below to participate in all kinds of building activities presented by Plumb Library! Our program offers something for everyone – from toddlers to adults – and everything is FREE!

The program runs for nine weeks, June 21 – August 21. Check the Event Calendar for performances and weekly activities starting June 22nd with Toe Jam Puppet Band, sponsored by the Rochester Lions Club. Registration is now open for all June events.

By registering, you will be creating a unique logging page for you to track minutes you read, library events you attend, and challenges you complete within Wandoo, our online reading and activity log. All loggers earn chances to win prizes, special awards from the Boston Bruins, and special invitations from local organizations! When kids read and log, they also earn credits to build an avatar within Wandoo. Read-alouds, audio books, and eBooks count!

Once you have registered go to Plumb Library to pick up your free book, Bruins poster, your “read and Roll” bookmark, and challenges!

If you registered last summer, you can use the same user name and password. If you are a new user, or do not remember last summer’s info, create a new user name and password. Once you are registered, you will receive a confirmation email. SAVE IT!
