Canada Day is coming up quick and we are looking forward to celebrating our 150th birthday. The celebration will continue all summer long with our Summer Reading program! The Summer Reading program will be in full swing starting next week and we are super excited! The program runs July 3rd until August 25th, Monday to Friday with daily activities and other fun stuff planned. Have we mentioned that the program is completely free … because it is!

Our Kick-off Party is on Wednesday, July 5 from 2-4 p.m. at Heartland Bowl. Pre-registration is required to ensure everyone gets some ice cream so call the library right now. That’s right … ice cream. We know how to start the summer off right here at the library.

We will be making Tie Dye t-shirts here at the library. Join us on Tuesday, July 4 from 10:30 a.m. to noon with the Canoes, of ages six to eight; 12:30 to 2 p.m. with the Ski-Doos, of ages nine to 12; and on Thursday, July 6 with the Zambonis, of ages 13-16. Pre-registration is required for this so please call or stop by the library to get your kids signed up. This has the potential to get messy so we suggest not wearing nice clothes that day!

Join us on Wednesday July 12 at 2:30 p.m. for a virtual visit of the Royal Tyrell Museum! This is an all-ages friendly but there is very limited space so call the library to register for this event as you don’t want to miss out.

Peter Puffin’s Whale Tales is also returning this summer so mark your calendars for Wednesday, July 19 at 2 p.m. Join us for some Canada-themed fun and that is appropriate for all ages. Pre-registration is not required for this so please bring your family and friends!

Also, this summer we are hosting Teen Cooking Mondays with maple candied bacon on the menu for Monday, July 3 starting at 3:30 p.m. Who doesn’t love maple, candy and bacon?! All Teen Cooking Mondays require pre-registration.

If you want more information about more Summer Reading program events or register for the events listed, please call 403-742-2292.

As always, for the most updated information please check spl.prl.ab.ca or our Facebook page for news of any other neat events and activities!
