Rock the Vote!

Did you know that the Woodland Public Library, and most libraries, are funded by tax-payer dollars?

Yes, public libraries are government organizations tasked with the mission of providing free educational materials such as books to everyone in the community. Not only do libraries provide books, but they provide essential services as well. For example, the Teen Advisory Board and all the teen events are funded by the City of Woodland’s tax measure, Measure J.

Woodland citizens had to vote YES for Measure J, otherwise many of the free youth services would disappear.

Which brings us to a very important matter for every U.S. Citizen 18 years and older… VOTING.

Woodland Public Library’s Teen Advisory Board believes that your vote matters!

That’s why we’ve partnered with Rock the Vote an a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization committed to ensuring as many teens, 18 and up, can register to vote as easily as possible.

Your vote matters… now make it count!


Art Gallery and Miniature Golf at the Library!

Our awesome teen volunteers had a great time building a 9 hole miniature golf course in the library for Downtown Woodland’s Main Street Open and First Friday Art Walk Event.

TAB members, Roshelle and Onica created the initial map of the golf course and 13 teen volunteers met on Friday afternoon to let their imaginations run wild. Initially, everyone tentatively started to stack books- but Greta, the Library Director, told the teens to really go big. Books, building blocks, cardboard, stuffed animals, paint, and all sorts of fun toys were used and the teens really brought their creative A-game.

Local teen, Arnon Erba  designed the flyer for the event and helped set up the gallery show in the front near the library’s rotunda. Teens also brought poetry, paintings and photography that were enjoyed by all.

About 100 people stopped by the library to see the artwork, play miniature golf and also see the new 3-D printer and test out 3-D pens that will be part of the library’s new maker space, Square One, opening early next year!
