The TD Summer Reading Club has commenced at the Falher Library and families can enroll their children for each Wednesday’s one-hour session.
Last Wednesday, Maegan Morin read ‘Shark Lady’ to the 18 children who attended.
“We hold it to promote literacy,” says Morin. “We went to get kids excited about reading.”
Then Morin, along with her partner, Sidney Tardif, had the children make aquariums. The materials they used included Mason glass jars, crystals and sea shells.
The summer reading program started July 4 and ends on Aug. 29, and it goes from 1:30-2:30 p.m. each day. It is open to children ages 5-12 and pre-registration is required, but only one time. For more information or to register your child, please call (780) 837-2776.
This year’s theme is all about ‘Finding Your Passion’. The library will offer programs featuring science, music, sports and more.
