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. contact@bibliowakefieldlibrary.ca

THANK YOU to my helpers: Abby, Jessica, Jordan, Rouge, Claire, Kiera, Gemma, and librarian Amy Carver and her library squad. Our reading club is averaging 18 young readers per session.

Previous Sessions:

  • The Reading Tree focused on trees, tree poetry and creating leaf prints to represent all the books we have been reading this summer.
  • Comic Books Come Alive with Illustrator Jo Rioux inspired everyone to create their own comic super hero!
  • Animals on the Loose provided an opportunity to dramatize a wonder story/ poem entitled Giraffes Can’t Dance and inspired many beautiful collages.
  • Butterfly Go Bananas was a science lesson in disguise and through an interactive game we now know butterflies lay up to 500 eggs, the species has existed for 50 million years and they live in all types of habitats.

summer reading

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!

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.”
