Once again, summer has come and gone much too quickly bringing an end to the Summer Reading Program at the Big Valley Municipal Library. Thanks to the energy, enthusiasm and creativity of our summer students, we were able to provide a popular and entertaining place for the children of our community to spend every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoon during August. Fun games, crafts, activities and awesome stories celebrating Canada were the focus this year.

Thank you to Taigen Whiteside and Karson Gridley for their hard work. We wish you luck in all your future endeavors. We must thank the Big Valley Municipal Library Board, the Friends of the Big Valley Library Society and all our dedicated volunteers for their marvelous support of all our activities.

We also thank the TD Bank Group, the Toronto Public Library and Library and Archives Canada for supporting literacy in Canada by offering the TD Summer Reading Club every summer to Canadian children across the nation. Contributing to the success of all library programs are the members of the Big Valley community who continue to support and value the role our library plays in this community.
