2013 Summer Reading Program

Again this year we participated in the national TD Bank Summer Reading Club. The theme “Let’s go! Bon Voyage” sparked the imagination and interest of the children.

Participants received a Reading Kit, which included a Reading Log Book, a Book Bingo sheet, a poster, stickers and bookmarks. Readers came to the library weekly, receiving a sticker for every book read. Stickers were place on our giant mural located on the stage. Children also had the chance to “Fish for a prize” once a week.

Participation in this program is always fantastic! In St-Pierre, 119 children read 4,620 books, an average of 39 books per child. In St-Malo, 34 children participated. Congratulations to all!

A wind-up party was held in each library. In St-Pierre, 82 children and parents participated in our “We’ve got talent/On a du talent” show. In St-Malo, 45 children and parents participated in an outdoors party. All children received small prizes , juice and cookies.

In St-Pierre-Jolys, every sticker represents  5 books read.
