Summer Reading Club
Special Summer Reading Club Event:
Read-A-Thon, July 28, 1-4 p.m.
The Summer Reading Club Program is throwing a Read-A-Thon party which will take place on July 28th! The event will be from 1 – 4 pm in the meeting room in the entrance of the library. It will not require registration beforehand. Summer Reading Club members (see below on how to join) can come any time within those three hours and stay for as long as they wish! The Read-A-Thon is a reading event where children will be encouraged to read on their own or with friends. Parents are welcome to come in with their children or stay in the library, but we ask that they do not leave the building. Furthermore, we will have group read-a-longs at half hour time intervals. We will be giving out prizes for those who participate and read at the Read-A-Thon.
Children may bring their own books they are already reading from home; however, please assure their name and phone number are written inside of the book. We will also have plenty of library books in the room that they can read. They can also go into the library and choose books to check out before joining in on the Read-A-Thon. There will be snacks available, so if your children have any allergies we encourage you to bring your own snacks.
Lastly, this event is pajama party themed so wear your pajamas (or comfy clothes) and bring a blanket or pillow!
About the Summer Reading Club
The Summer Reading Club is a free program offered by public libraries across the province. Each summer, approximately 85 000 children participate by signing up for reading records and/or joining in the weekly programs that promote literacy and a love of reading. Studies show that summer reading clubs motivate kids to read regularly, so they help to maintain or improve reading skills while school is out. They make reading fun, too. Kids may read whatever they like, wherever they wish.
All school-aged children are welcome to join. We encourage every child of every reading ability to open a book that is perfect for them!
The theme for 2017 is:
