What to do this summer – Literally Yours

Hey guys! The countdown is on until school is over for the summer. That also means the countdown is on until the Summer Reading Program starts! Everyone is invited to come participate, even if you don’t really like to read. There’s no registration required, either.

Starting on July 4th, we’re going to be here all day doing awesome activities with kids and teens. EVERY SINGLE DAY. Except Saturday and Sunday. We’re also going to be at the Rochon Sands Community Hall every Wednesday morning, so if you’re camping you can come on out and join us.

We are going to be visiting the schools this month to give classes a taste of what is happening in our program this year. We’ll be visiting Stettler Elementary School kindergarten classes on June 15th, and grades one to five classes on June 20th. We’ll be visiting the Stettler Middle School classes between June 13th and June 15th. We will be at Erskine School on the last day of school, June 27th.

If you aren’t a big reader but want to get better, or if you just prefer reading out loud, you can sign up to be a reading buddy. We’ll pair up an older kid with a younger kid based on the types of books they enjoy and their reading levels, and once or twice a week they can meet up for an hour, have a snack, and read aloud with each other. If you want book suggestions to get you started, peep at our blog: http://jeunebib.blogspot.com.

Killarney Sheffield, romance author, will be here on June 11th from 2:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m., and Betty Jane Hegarat will be here on June 14th from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. to talk about her book ‘The Boy’ which is based on the story of Robert Raymond Cook and a fictional character named Louise.

You are cordially invited to attend Royal Tea at the library at six o’clock p.m. on June 23rd in honour of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s visit to Canada. We will be making fascinators, sipping tea and nibbling on cucumber sandwiches, and having games of library style croquet. Call, e-mail, or come in to R.S.V.P.!
