Summer Reading Club 2016: Book a Trip!

I’m a little late posting these pictures, but better late than never, right?

Here is a peek at some of the fun SRC programs that we had at the library this summer.

Uncle Chris the Clown is the best clown EVER! He’s not scary, he’s very funny, and he does magic. Okay, so he doesn’t actually do the magic correctly, but the kids are great at showing him how it’s done. 🙂

For our animal lovers, the SPCA helped us discover all the horrible things that could happen if an exotic animal was let loose in our community. They also helped us decide which rodent would make the best pet. Which do you think would make the best pet: a hamster, a guinea pig, a mouse or a rat? Did you guess rat? Then you would be correct!!

The Okanagan Science Centre opened our eyes to the amazing world that exists beyond what our normal eyes can see.

Then we had our local Japanese art guru (Eiko) teach us some amazing Origami and Japanese Calligraphy.

Did you wonder how our weekly Booksmacks turned out? Well they were a ton of fun! There was a great group of youth who showed up, wonderful books shared and many marshmallows tossed (and eaten). It was hard to determine which was more fun- the book sharing & marshmallow throwing or the games we played after. Here are some pictures of us playing Quelf and Minute-To-Win-It (two of our favourite games). See if you can figure out which pictures belong to the Cookie Face Minute-To-Win-It challenge. The name of the game is to move the cookie from your forehead to your mouth without using your hands. Pretty funny, eh?!

We had many other exciting programs which, sadly, didn’t get photographed (due to unreliable cameras).

Thanks to everyone who took part in SRC 2016. And thank you to our Friends of the Library who funded our activities and prizes. We had another great summer!
