Storytime Videos

Our storytime videos are short but very sweet! Kate, our children’s librarian, visits virtually with your children for a wave hello, a cup of tea, a book (of course!), a few songs and rhymes, and the much loved felt story.

The 15 minute long pre-recorded storytime videos are for kids of all ages. All storytime videos can be viewed at any time on our Storytime Playlist on Facebook.

Summer Reading Club

The Summer Reading Club is a free program offered by public libraries across the province. Each summer, approximately 85,000 children participate by signing up for reading records and/or joining in the weekly programs that promote literacy and a love of reading. Studies show that summer reading clubs motivate kids to read regularly, so they help to maintain or improve reading skills while school is out. They make reading fun, too. Kids may read whatever they like, wherever they wish.

All school-aged children are welcome to join. We encourage every child of every reading ability to open a book that is perfect for them!

Sign up for our bi-weekly library newsletter to know when the next summer reading club starts!
