Summer Reading Club
At this time, registration is full for our outdoor meet-ups and Play Packs. We are extremely disappointed that we have to limit the number of kids who can join us in-person due to COVID-19 restrictions. To include kids who may want to participate but who haven’t registered yet, we are opening registration for the Summer Reading Club – Online Access Only! Registering for the Summer Reading Club – Online Access Only, will allow you to join us every Thursday morning beginning July 8th at 10:30am our Zoom meeting. During this meeting, children are invited to join us in playing games and reading stories! Children registered for the Summer Reading Club – Online Access Only are also invited to submit Weekly Reading Logs for a chance to win prizes! These reading logs will be available right here on our website.
Welcome to this year’s Summer Reading Club!
The Summer Reading Club welcomes all kids between the ages 5 and 12 to join us beginning July 7th and ending August 19th.
With the recent Manitoba public health update, outdoor gatherings of up to 25 people are now permitted. That said, the Library would like to offer children the chance to meet us in-person once a week every Wednesday morning @10:30am (weather permitting) to play games, make crafts, and read stories! For these outdoor meet-ups, masks will be optional for children but physical distancing will be mandatory for children of separate households.
If, for whatever reason your child cannot participate in-person, the activities can instead be picked up at the Library and completed at home. At the beginning of each week, the website will have instructions for these activities. Some of the activities may require items from home. Please let us know the week before if your child will be joining us in-person or picking up supplies for the following week.
Every Thursday morning @10:30am, the Library will be hosting a Zoom meeting where children can join us and play games and read stories!
Like last year, Weekly Reading Logs will be available on our website to fill out and submit.
This year, we are offering reading incentives for the kids. There are 6 separate Reading Prizes. The Weekly Reading Log form will ask you which Reading Prize out of the 6 you would like enter when you submit. One entry will be given to a child for every 30 minutes they read.
This year there is also a Grand Prize. Entries for the Grand Prize will be attendance based. Additionally, children who hand in all 7 Weekly Reading Logs by the last day of the program, will not only be dubbed a “Super-Reader” but will also be given three additional entries for the Grand Prize! On our last program day of the summer, August 19, we will be drawing the prizes and posting the winners.
The Library is on Facebook, Instagram and YouTube and will be posting on these platforms throughout the summer, so be sure to check in often! Anytime new information arises, we will be emailing updates to parents/guardians who have registered, as well as posting the information on our Website, Instagram, and Facebook pages.
Please check out the TD Summer Reading Club website for more activity ideas, online games, recommended reads, reading challenges, and more! https://www.tdsummerreadingclub.ca/about_the_club
We want to encourage reading with EVERYONE! All Children who participate will receive a new book at the end of the summer! The book prize will be available for pick up at the end of the program.
Hope you have a great summer and get ready to PLAY ON!
