Douglas County Library summer reading program to begin

The Douglas County Library summer reading program will begins Monday, June 8.

Families will be able to track their children’s reading minutes through the Wandoo Reader program and, if they read enough, they’ll earn a free book.

There are two groups of readers. Zero to 4 years old (with help from a parent or caregiver) and 5 to 12 years old. You can learn how to sign up on the library website at or the library Facebook page.

The library is open for all patrons Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Five people are allowed in at one time for 15-minute increments.

Curbside pickup is also an option and remains very popular, according to county officials. Go to the website, sign in with your library card number, put your items on hold and arrange a time to pick them up.
