NEDERLAND – There will be a summer reading program in the Netherlands organized by staff members of the Marion & Ed Hughes Public Library, complete with gifts for local children, youth and adults.
This year the theme is “Imagine Your Story.”
There will be programs for children, teenagers and adults with reading involved. The library will still have prizes for each group, made possible by generous sponsors in the community: Burger King, Chile, Dairy Queen, Domino, DuGood Credit Union, El Viejo Tony, Firehouse Subs, Friends of the Library, Jumping World, Mazzio’s , McAlister’s, MCK Construction and Neches Federal Credit Union.
Because of COVID-19, the summer reading program will be a little different this year, but it will still be very enjoyable. For the health and safety of our community, customers and staff, the summer log reading program will be fully digital. All time summer stories, “Getting Crafty” and special events will also be online.
New for Summer 2020, all progress will be included and recorded online in the Online Summer Reading Program. This portal is a product called Wandoo Reader and is used by libraries throughout the country.
To register, open the library’s website at ned.lib.tx.us. Select the appropriate program level, then select “Join Here” and complete the requested information.
Be sure to write your username and password. Wandoo Reader includes the option to have a game based program. When you record your reading, you get points that allow you to level up through the storyline and receive “parts” that you can use to change the appearance of your avatar.
It is set so that the game is active for kids and teens, but you can choose to turn it off. Adults will see a basic logging program.
Each participant can register for their own account. If you are the parent or guardian of many children who also want to participate in Summer Reading, you can register for a Family Management Portal account to handle all your family registrations in one account.
New program level
The library has added a Preschool program from birth to age 5. This program includes reading and weekly prizes, but also 10 special challenges for parents and preschoolers to do together. If all 10 challenges are completed, your child will get an extra gift from a book.
The library adds some challenges to the program, but the completion is not necessary.
Teen programs change
Every time you read six books, you will get another entry into our grand prize picture. You can be one of six teen winners. The more you participate in summer reading, the better chance you have of winning.
Every week the library will post four new challenges. If you complete three challenges, you will get a special prize for that week.
Change in adult programs
You are still reading and will be able to get entries into the weekly and main draw.
In addition, every week throughout the summer, you will see a new “challenge”. The challenge is not mandatory, but every time you complete a challenge, you will get another entry to the grand prize draw held at the end of the program.
Complete all six challenges and you will get six additional entries for the grand prize draw.
