Summer Reading Program

We are so excited to welcome Paige and Judy as our Summer Reading Program Coordinators.  They have lots of fun and exciting activities planned.  The program will start June 27 at 1 pm.  It will run every Tuesday and Thursday until mid-August.  This is a free program open to all children ages 5 to 11 but we do require registering the kids and a parental consent.  Throughout the summer the kids will be celebrating Canada’s 150th birthday through reading, crafts and other activities.  Sign up your child today!
