After June 21, you can register on Wandoo. 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!
