Be part of the Summer Reading Program at the Buchanan District Library! We have programs and prizes for readers of all ages. Sign up online (links below) or in-person at the library. We are again using Wandoo Reader. If you've participated in the past, please reuse your account instead of starting a new one. If you need a reminder on your username or password, please email Laura. If you have more than one family member participating, we encourage you to use the Family Management Portal, which lets you access all your accounts in one place. Click here for a help sheet on the Family Management Portal.


Join the Library for Tails and Tales this summer and be rewarded for reading! For children through 17 years old.

Track your reading from June 7 through July 24 using Wandoo Reader or a paper log. Stop by the library to pick up a paper log.

Awards for 1st , 2nd, 3rd place, and Top Reader will be presented in each age category:

You can set your own personal reading goal for the entire 7 weeks. We also have set a Community Reading Goal of 150,000 minutes for the 7 week program. Everyone's reading counts towards the Community Goal. Help us make our goal!
