Programming and Events

Fun at the library!  

Here at Woodland Public Library we have lots of fun programs and events for kids!  Check out our calendar and the information below!

Our current programming for kids includes:

An Afterschool Program that runs from September to May every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Tuesdays are Game Days, Wednesdays are Family Art and Craft Days, and Thursdays are Lego Club.  Kids ages 5-12 are welcome to come and participate any time—no sign up necessary! 

Minecraft Club meets every Thursday. Participants talk all things Minecraft, build worlds, tackle challenges, and of course, play the game! The club has limited space and requires registration. Contact Children's Librarian Abigail Craig at 530-661-5981 for more information or to be added to the waitlist.

Coding Classes taught by UC Davis students are offered throughout the year during UC Davis academic quarters. Kids learn how to code using online programs like Scratch and our new Dash and Dot robots from Wonder Workshop. The next batch of classes will be starting in late January. Contact Children's Librarian Abigail Craig at 530-661-5981 for more information.

Weekly storytimes are available for kids of all ages. Storytimes include interactive songs and rhymes, movement, and of course, reading books! 

Homework Help is available online as well as at the library during the school year on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4:30-5:30pm.  All children are welcome to come and receive free homework help from our teen volunteers. Look for info here in late summer about start dates for our library Homework Help program.
