Reading Clubs

Our summer club starts June 2 and ends July 19.  Our theme this year is "Fizz, Boom, Read."


Children from infant to grade 5 will be invited to join our summer reading club. Books need to be checked out from the library and reading incentives will be earned. Children can read by minutes or by number of books. We encourage everyone to read at their reading level.
