Summer Reading Club

The Summer Reading Club begins in only two weeks! If your child loves to read, play games, or make crafts, be sure to register them for the Summer Reading Club at the Lac du Bonnet Library! Like last year, we will be offering kids take home activities every week that can be picked up at the Library and reading logs can be submitted online for a chance to win really cool prizes! Additionally, this year we will be hosting a virtual story time every Thursday morning on zoom! You can find the link to the registration form and more information at our Website: lacdubonnetlibrary.ca. While you’re there be sure to check out our super fun Summer Reading Club trailer!
