Reading Rocks!

It’s summer. And that means Summer Reading Club!

This year the provincial theme is Reading Rocks! What a great theme it is too. You should see our meeting room. It’s been transformed by our Summer Programming Assistant, Jessica, into a veritable party room. With silhouettes and real vinyl records and microphones and all manner of amazing decorations, the Canfor Room is definitely the place to be this summer. Especially if you are between the ages of 3 and 12.

Last week we kicked off the Summer Reading Club with our traditional Registration Day and to help us make it even more exciting than usual, Daryl Robb of Talking Lobster Productions and host of Down by the Docks (a cable TV show for children) took an audience of 50+ parents and kids on a Jungle Safari! It was an amazing hour of song and comedy as Daryl and his side-kick Leroy the Talking Lobster exchanged jokes and sang up a storm. Everyone left with a huge smile on his or her face.

As the summer progresses, Jessica has all sorts of great fun planned for the kids. Stories, games, crafts... there won’t be a dull moment from now until August 18th when we host the SRC Wind-up Party – another tradition at HPL. Join us then between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. for a BBQ, awards, more games and more crafts. It’s going to be a Rockin’ good time as the participants show off their skills with an air band contest.
