summer reading club

The TD Summer Reading Club meets in the Wakefield library on Tuesdays from 10:30 to 12:30.  It’s free and open to all ages.

Come join us each week to explore the world of nature, our theme for this summer, through all sorts of activities – reading, writing, storytelling, drama activities and related crafts. Sign up at the library or just show up on the day!  We are looking for some young assistants as well as participants. Facilitated by Sally Swan.

THANK YOU to my assistants for the first two Club meetings: Kudos to Jessica, Lauryn, Abby, Jordan, Rouge, Claire, several parents and grans, and the librarians for helping me make this such an interactive and fun Summer Library Club! There were 24 participants at our Rock On workshop and another 17 for our Reading Tree session.

summer reading

What an astonishing thing a book is. It’s a flat object made from a tree with flexible parts on which are imprinted lots of funny dark squiggles. But one glance at it and you’re inside the mind of another person, maybe somebody dead for thousands of years. Across the millennia, an author is speaking clearly and silently inside your head, directly to you. Writing is perhaps the greatest of human inventions, binding together people who never knew each other, citizens of distant epochs. Books break the shackles of time. A book is proof that humans are capable of working magic.”

Cosmos, Part 11: The Persistence of Memory (1980)” Carl Sagan
Up Coming Topics:

There is a CLUB READING TREE in the corner of the library where we will add leaves for all of the books our members are reading this summer! There will be prizes for those who log in lots of books over the summer so keep track of what you read! Remember: Reading is the new software for our brains!
