Are you ready to build a better world? You can read and record from June 21-August 12. Log into Wandoo Reader, choose an avatar, and then read and record books to earn points and level up! When registering your child, please note that the Easy, Medium and Hard difficulty levels are roughly related to K-1st / 2nd-3rd grade / 4th- 5th grade, respectively. 

NEW THIS YEAR: Parents can link all their children's Wandoo accounts together for easier access.
1. Register each of your children for Build a Better World or Jr. Reading Program using a unique user name and password. 
2. Go to the Wandoo Login page and click "Enter Family Management Portal." A "Login" window will pop-up. Click "Join Here" at the top of the page.  Enter Parent's name, email, and password. 
3. Upon registration, a confirmation email will be sent to the parent's email. The parent needs to confirm his/her account via the link in the confirmation email.
4. Children that have been previously registered in Wandoo with the parent's email address will be automatically linked to the parent's account for easy management. One login to access and update all registered children! 

Every 200 minutes you read and record earns you a raffle ticket, Wandoo points for your avatar, and advancement to the next level on the Library's Building Boulevard!
