Week Three of the Summer Reading Club has come to an end just like the dinosaurs we talked about, and both are equally saddening. But we were lucky enough to present a virtual tour of the Tyrrell Royal Museum without leaving the library and even found several dinosaur fossils during our digs. This week we are changing gears and exploring Canadian Sports! Did you know basketball was invented by a Canadian? Speaking of basketball, one of our summer students Andrew is hosting drop-in basketball every Wednesday this summer starting at 2 p.m. Just meet him at the library and bring appropriate gear along with a water bottle and game’s on.

We hope our Summer Reading clubbers have been keeping track of their reading minutes as we are attempting to cruise across Canada and back! Each minute read is 500 meters … so the more you read, the better. Reading logs are available at the library and you can check out your progress when you come see us!

On Wednesday, July 26 at 2 p.m., join us at the Jewel Theatre for our weekly family event. We are happy to be presenting Despicable Me as there is no such thing as too many minions. You just need to purchase your own concession as we will take care of the admission. Banana!

Join us on Mondays at 3:30 p.m. for our Teen Cooking Club, of ages 12 and over, as we make yummy culinary creations. This requires pre-registration so check with the library what is on the menu when you register!

Whether you are trying to hide from heat or rain, join us on Fridays at 2 p.m. for our Friday Films! Each week we present a film related to the weekly theme of the reading program.
