Written By ROSE DOTTEN

Children from pre-readers to age 12 are invited this Friday, July 5th to the kick-off party for TD Summer Reading Club. Starting at 10:30am, our friend, Carolyn j. Morris will be at YOUR Library with her chicks, then at 11:30am we will explain how the TDSRC works. You can register by calling YOUR Library or emailing children@shelburnelibrary.ca to let us know you are coming! We have a fun-filled summer planned, and you won’t want to miss out.

Teen Scene

Teens had a blast at our Teen Summer Reading Club launch party where they learned a new technique for acrylic pouring. As promised, this summer started off a little bit messy and not so quiet, and we can’t wait for the rest of our awesome events to happen! The TSRC lets Teens earn points toward prizes by attending events, reading books, and completing challenges! Teens or parents of Teens can register for any of the events by calling 519-925-2168 or emailing jnoble@shelburnelibrary.ca. Registering helps us have an adequate amount of supplies prepared.

Upcoming events:

Tuesday, July 9th, 4:00-5:00pm- The Silent Library Challenge

Tuesday, July 16th, 4:00-5:00pm- Marshmallow Fling Challenge

Thursday, July 18th, 4:00-6:00pm- Teen Scary Movie- “Us”
