Read and Play Kits

We are launching Read and Play kits in the Library.  These are such a fun and playful way to explore language!

Encourage your child to retell and recreate their favourite scenes from the book using props to help develop their language and memory.

Develop your child's creativity by encouraging them to create their own story lines and plots too. 

We have a selection of Read and Play Kits available with more being added. 

Reading Challenge for Adults

In the new year we will be launching reading challenges for adults, youth, and children.  There will be different levels of challenges based on each person's reading level, allowing us to tailor the challenge specifically to each and every reader.  We will be offering spot prizes as well as prizes on completion of the challenge.  More details are to come, so keep an eye on our website and/or Facebook page for more information as the year comes to a close.
