Summer Reading Club 2015  

Get ready to build up a storm this summer!

Please Pre-Register by July 2nd

Lumby participants aged 5 to 12, will have 4 Exciting Programs to attend.

Thursdays- July 9 and 23 and August 13th and 27th

 

Built to Last will introduce architecture and structures, where a spaghetti building contest will take place. We also have Leif David the magician as a kick-off entertainer this day!

 

Build the Future will be based on sci-fi/futuristic technology. We will take registration for this program as we only have 30 spots for building bug robots.

Build it Yourself for Fun will focus on crafts and DIY books, puzzles, LEGO etc. The participants can use their imaginations to build an item that is useful to either themselves or interesting ideas of what their gadget could be used for by recycling kitchenware. The second part of the program, as a group, our participants will build a portion of a selected story that is read to them and using LEGO recreate the scene. This will be a group project that will remain on display at the library using the LEGO from the library.

 

 

Celebration Wind up - Gathering – We will try a science experiment, play a  game or two and prizes will be handed out. There may also be some treats.

 Each of the programs offered are educational, fun programs to keep up the interest.

We also find that the medals and novelty items continue to draw reluctant and avid readers to the programs.

The goals of the programs are to: 1) Promote regular reading which helps maintain reading skills. 2) Help increase literacy levels for our children. 3) Help children develop a lifelong love of reading. 4) Have fun!

 

 

Thank you to M. Unterberger, L. Anderson, the Lumby Lions and Vernon Friends of the Library for supporting this literacy based program.
