Library hosting summer reading program

100 Mile House Branch Library has its Summer Reading Club underway and new participants welcomed

Children are encouraged to join the 2012 Summer Reading Club this summer at the 100 Mile House Branch Library.

Sponsored by the British Columbia Library Association, the free program is designed to encourage excitement about reading in children aged three to 12.

The theme for this year’s program is “Strange…but true” and involves books, activities and games. It is being offered at all three Cariboo Regional District branch libraries.

While the program began in June, all of the 100 Mile House sessions still have openings, with various choices of days and times.

The series began July 3 and runs to Aug. 16, and then ends with a party in Centennial Park for all registered children on Aug. 17.

To register, visit the local library branch, at 449 Birch Ave., during regular hours and complete the registration form available at the front desk.

Drop-in space is available, but will require on-the-spot registration.

Parents may choose one, hour-long program session each week offered for the younger age groups at various times on Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays, while the 10-12 years group sessions are available Tuesday or Thursday from 3 to 4:30 p.m.

For information on sessions or the schedule, call program co-ordinator Kendyl Boyd at 250-395-2332 or e-mail to ohsrcoordinator@cariboord.bc.ca.
