The Donalda Library has just wrapped up this year’s TD Summer Reading Program with the theme of Canada 150 and from the wonderful crafts on display it is easy to tell that everyone had a blast. The program numbers continue to rise and this year the Donalda Library was able to hire two summer students to help run the program. The program focused on keeping kids learning and staying active during the summer months. All the kids who took part in this year’s program are eager to see what the Donalda Library has in store for next year.
