Reading to children is the best way to prepare them for school This free program encourages families to spend quality time together and promote pre-literacy and learning by reading 1000 books before your child starts Kindergarten. Any child ages birth to five years entering kindergarten can participate in this self-paced early literacy program.
Come to any of our branches to register and pick up your reading log. Any book read by anybody counts. Bring your reading log back at predetermined milestones to get small prizes. The concept is simple, the rewards are priceless! And check out the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten iPhone App. It’s free! Watch for the official launch in September!
Families are encouraged to take a summer walk around the one kilometre loop at Kerry Wood Nature Centre and read a story together along the way. Each laminated page leads you to the next one on the trail. Trail Tales combines literacy, physical activity and nature in one fun adventure. What better way to read a story with your family!
We LOVE summer! Come to our patio at the Dawe Branch to read or just relax in tranquility, have some refreshing cold drinks and get a variety of herbs for your home meals from our community herb garden.
Start the weekend off right! Drop in at the Timberlands Branch on Friday mornings and enjoy a cup of coffee or tea while relaxing in our comfy chairs, reading the newspaper or a magazine, or looking for your next favourite read!
