We have had a wonderful time Exploring Nature at the Lac du Bonnet Library this summer! Thank you to all the children who joined us, and also to their parents, grandparents and guardians for bringing them to the Library. Congratulations to Bonnie Swayze and to Payden Schwab for all their efforts to ensure the children had fun during their summer holidays.

We are so proud of how the children kept up their reading throughout the program and we hope to see you all again next summer!
