|Dates Program is Offered||We are working within the COVID-19 pandemic guidelines to re-establish some or all of the programs listed below, but we are currently not holding programs.
Summer Reading Club for school-age children grades 1-8 and Summer Reading Club Jr. for pre-schoolers runs from July-August. This is a free provincial program that is based on a theme chosen by one of our 5 regions. Children get logbooks to keep track of the books they read and each week we have a program with stories, games, and a craft or activity! Registration is necessary, but attendance to the weekly meetings is not. This is a great way to motivate children to continue to read throughout the summer. Contact the library for more program information. Contact the library for more program information.
