Summer Reading Program 2021

For the summer of 2021, due to provincial restrictions, programs will be in-person, outdoors in the Lions Park with group size limitations. The Summer Reading Program starts July 6 and runs until August 19.

Since there are group size limitations, registration is required.

  • Registration this year is for the entire 7 week program. We are not doing weekly registrations, however, we will take late registrations.
  • Registrations will be accepted in-person only. The original registration period was from June 28 - July 3. There are some remaining open spots, please contact the library or the Summer Reading Program Co-ordinator (email below) if you wish to join for the remaining portion of the summer
  • There is a fee of $5 per child for the summer (subsidy available, please inquire)

Please note:

  • These programs will take place in the Picnic Pavilion in the Lions Park. In case of program cancellation, participants will be emailed on the day of the program.
  • Children are grouped according to the age they will be turning in 2021
  • Masks are required unless a 2m physical distance can be maintained.
