It has been a fun filled summer. So fun, in fact, that I haven’t had time to update the blog. Here are some pictures of what we’ve been up to in the Salmon Arm branch these days.

Before you look at the pictures, though, I first want to acknowledge our Salmon Arm Friends of the Library group. without our Friends, summer programs wouldn’t be nearly as fun. Thank you Friends!!! (If anyone is interested in joining our Friends group, contact the library for more information. They are always eager to have more people join.)

STEAM Adventures:

We had 2 STEAM programs this summer, and both were a tremendous success. A lot of imaginative thinking, building and creating occurred. Who knew Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math could be so much fun?!

Book Smack & STEAM:

Book Smack & Marshmallow Toss is a ton of fun, but when you add STEAM Adventures it’s an even bigger hit. I tip my hat to all the kids who got up, at the risk of being hit by marshmallows, and talked about a book. You all did a wonderful job!!
