Reading Club summer party


The summer reading club program runs from July 4 to August 25 at both the Rockland and Bourget library branches. It is the biggest bilingual summer reading program offe- red in Canada for children of all ages and interests. The program is free and all that is required is a promise from children who register that they will read as many books as they can during their summer vacation. Every child registered for the program receives a summer reading package, which includes a log sheet to record titles of books and the total number of pages that the child reads during the summer. The final date to register for the program is Aug. 18, by 8 p.m., at either library branches. The reading package also has a calendar list of each theme covered during the pro- gram, a sticker book, a couple of bookmarks, and a bracelet with instructions on how to collect the charms that go on the brace- let. When a child reports for the first time how many pages they have read as part of their summer reading, their name goes on the base camp list of Book Mountain at the library. As more books are read, and more pages tallied, the child’s name and its avatar move on up the mountain. For readers ages six to eight, all printed library books are eligible for their summer reading record tomove up BookMountain. For nine to 12-year-olds, the junior fiction lineup of books at the library, which include a number of graphic novels, are eligible for helping ascend Book Mountain. To take part inweekly club activities at the library, parents can register their children by phone or in person at either of the library branches.There is a limit of one activity per week per child to make sure that all child- ren in the summer reading program have a chance to take part.There is no limit, though, on the total number of participants in each activity. For more details on the summer reading club program, parents are urged to visit or phone either the Rockland or Bourget library branches.

It was party time at the Clarence-Rockland Public Library last Thursday. Party time outside of the library, that is, as children ran around yelling and laughing, and in some cases dragging their parents along by the hand to check out the fun and games library staff and volunteers had set up to mark the official start of this year’s TD Sum- mer Reading Club program. “There’s no limit to the imaginary travels in books,” saidMayor Guy Desjardins, as he officiated with a brief speech for the start of the program and the party. “We have a library full of books. It is packed with trea- sures waiting to be discovered.”
