In case you missed it, we recently launched our 2020 Virtual Summer Reading Clubs forKids,Teens, andAdults. Here are a few highlights (and things to look forward to!).
We're now into Week Three of our Kids Summer Reading Club. This week's theme is Animals, and Miss Deb has a few different crafts for kids to try out and some really cool virtual tours to explore too.
The best part about running our program virtually?! You can enjoy the summer at your own pace -- you won't miss a thing! So if you haven't checked out Superhero Week or I Like to Move it, Move it Week, don't worry! The videos, activity booklet, and other fun things to do at home are still there waiting for you!
BONUS: If you're looking for books to go with each theme, you can fill out the Grab & Go Bundle request form and we'll put together a selection of themed books and a printed copy of the activity booklet for you to pick up!
Prize #1: Available July 15!
Have you completed the first Kids Summer Reading Challenge sheet?! If so, you can now pick up your prize at any branch during our curbside pickup hours (Monday-Thursday, 11 a.m. - 6 p.m.).
We love hearing from you! Nothing makes us happier than hearing from our teen readers! Nyah, Alexander, and Tessa have sent in book reviews and favourites and you can too! Check out their picks and submit your own to have them featured on the Teen Summer Reading Club Website!
A couple of times a week, we share staff picks, resources, DIY videos, and more to help you tackle those Adult Summer Reading Club challenges! So far we've talked about our Podcast, shown you how to create a summer wreath for your front door, talked about how to enjoy the perfect summer day, and gave lots of suggestions on where to find great book recommendations.
