September is Library Card Sign-Up Month
Since 1987, Library Card Sign-up Month has been held each September to mark the beginning of the school year. During the month, the ALA and libraries unite in a national effort to ensure every child signs up for their own library card. For more information about how to sign up for a library card, visit Woodbridge Public Libraries in person or online by clicking HERE .
Exercise for your brain and intellect is important for mental health and growth. Shared resources like libraries are some of the best examples of efficiency and saving money. Click HERE for a blog article with a nice list.

Stop in for your library card or renew your library card, and check out something fresh from our displays!

Volunteer Hours for
Young Adult Book Reviews

You asked, we listened. For those in need of more community service hours, you now have another option! Here’s how it works:

  • You read a book at least 100 pages in length.
  • You fill out the form we provide in the library, which includes information about the book, and a 1.5-page review (I.e., Half of the front and the entire back of the page) of the book. 
  • Turn the form in--with a week for us to process your entry--we can we give you one hour of community service for every 100 pages read. So if you read a 374-page book, you get three hours.

That’s it. It’s easy! 
Programs offered by the Children's Department are intended for children in grades K - 7 with an accompanying adult for children under 9 years.
Many of our programs do not require registration, but kindly click on calendar links or the flyers posted to the eNews to register as needed.
