SRC 2024: World of Curiosities

Registration OPEN!

This year Summer Reading Club will be brimming with SEVEN weeks of curiosity-driven activities designed to engage school-aged children, ages 5-14, with libraries and reading throughout the summer!

From July 2nd to August 16th, engage in weekly workshops, book clubs, reading challenges, and afternoon Prime Time brought to you by low-key crafts, Lego builds, and board games. New this year: a weekly workshop for young writers. Remember to start reading and begin tracking your daily reading goals in your very own “World of Curiosities” summer reading tracker available at the start of July at PRPL’s Service Desk. Collect stickers as you go!

From the wonders of the natural world to fantastical creatures of the deep sea to geology and invention, to the myriad ways kids can experience and communicate in the world, this year’s SRC will encourage you dive deep, ask questions, and follow your curiosity!

PLEASE NOTE: Summer Reading Club programs are best suited for school-aged children ages 5+. Adult supervision is required for children 7 and younger. Full details below:

Children are an important part of the community the library serves and are encouraged to use the library and attend programs with the supervision of an adult. This supervision may take the form of an adult co-attending a program or remaining within the library for the duration of a program. In either case, caregivers are responsible at all times for the safety and behaviour of their children in the library and must be available to provide any necessary support to their child in library programs.

PRPL does not provide childcare through its services and programs and cannot assume responsibility for children left unattended in the library or at a program. Children who wish to leave a library program may choose to do so and will not be accompanied by staff.
