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 9 weeks, June 21 – August 21. Check the Event Calendar for performances, and weekly activities starting June 22nd! Registration is now open for all June events, starting with the Toe Jam Puppet Band, on June 22nd!

Log 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 e-books count!

Once you have registered, go to Plumb Library to pick up your free book, a calendar, and challenges!
