Summer reading program

BC Summer Reading Club begins July 2 at the Rossland Public Library

  • Jun. 18, 2015 12:00 p.m.

It’s that time of year again. As school comes to a close, the BC Summer Reading Club (SRC) is gearing up. Starting Thursday, July 2, the Rossland Public Library is happy to host the program with the 2015 theme ‘Build It!’. The program is designed for kids from preschool to Grade 7. In Rossland, the library will offer three sessions per week. On Tuesdays, kids ages 6-8 years can come to the library from 1-2:30 p.m.; on Wednesdays, we welcome 9-12 year olds from 1-2:30 p.m., and on Fridays the preschool (ages 0-5) session will run from 10:30-11:30 a.m. The program runs for seven weeks. It’s a free program, and registration is currently open and ongoing. Registration forms can be found at the library. Just ask at the front desk.

But wait, there’s more! The Rossland Library is pleased to announce it will be featuring a weekly booth at the Mountain Market on Thursdays from 3-6 p.m. We will have a large water jug, crafts, games, songs and stories for the kids. We will be there each week starting the week of July 2 and finishing the week of August 20.

The SRC encourages children to read outside of school and to inspire a love or reading. Each group will have its own unique program with different crafts, games and, of course, stories and books centred on a weekly theme. For the younger group, sessions mostly consist of songs, stories and simple crafts. For the older groups there are games, crafts, outside activities and, of course, storytime. There are prizes to be won and medals handed out for those who fill out their reading records. This summer the SRC is being co-ordinated by Rebecca Richards and Marco Santano.
