Fun, games, and prizes are available for this year’s summer reading program with the Weyburn Public Library. It’s more than just reading, from interactive theme weeks, crafts, and bingo games, children, teens, and adults are all invited to participate in the fun.
“There’s a lot of fun things going on, this summer, our theme is ‘Once Upon a Time in Weyburn’, every week we will be exploring different themes, myths, and legends, and within that, we will be doing different crafts and activities,” said Alexis Christianson, Summer Reading Program Coordinator.
Some of the myths and legends that children can look forward to exploring are dragons, and land and water creatures. Take and Make Kits will also be available at different times throughout the summer.
For the children who would like to participate in the TD Summer Reading Program, the Weyburn Public Library asks parents to pre-register online here, the program will begin July 4 and close August 19.
Besides reading, teens can look forward to playing bingo and many other games and activities.
“This year at the library we are going to be doing a bingo card where teens can come and pick it up on June 27,” said Joanne Smith, Teen Programmer. “It’s going to be more than just reading books, it might be listening to an audiobook, playing a game, coming to a teen library program, or coming and taking a colouring page from our teen area, we are doing it in a way to engage teens with the library in general, so that they can see we have some fun stuff to offer,” continued Smith.
Teens will have the opportunity to win many prizes including weekly, and monthly prizes, and one grand prize.
Additional programming for the teens includes Munchie Mondays, Wacky Wednesdays, and Artsy Crafts Thursdays, for more information you can go here.
Krista Klemmer, Adult Program Coordinator has also planned many activities for the summer.
“Our adult summer reading program is going to be a bingo this year, the card has a bunch of different activities that are literacy-based, so it’s not just reading, it will be open to anyone, and anyone should be able to do it, even non-readers,” shared Klemmer.
The first 50 people to pick up their adult bingo card at the library will get a small prize. Prize giveaways also include gift cards.
“Deadline to get your prizes in is August 19, and we will be doing an adult summer reading wind-up on Tuesday, August 23 at 6:30 p.m., we’ll have some outdoor games and snacks, including giant Jenga, and we’ll find out who wins our first, second, and third prizes,” added Klemmer.
Additional adult activities include the Makerspace Area and the Grab ‘N Go Kits, for more information you can go here.
