Summer Reading Club kicks off July 4th from 1-2 p.m. with a scavenger hunt at Sylvan Lake Municipal Library.

All ages are welcome for a story, snack, and games, followed by your choice of an in-house or around town scavenger hunt. Participants may pick up their reading packages for the summer program at the library after the hunt.

The club is a six-week reading program at the library where children of all ages may come for stories, crafts, snacks, games, and activities. If you are unable to make it to library programs, ask about our reading only portion.

This year’s theme is, “Explore the Wonders of the World”. Join us as we drop down Niagara Falls, scale the Great Pyramids of Giza, and build our own Leaning Tower of Pizza!

This program is completely free, registration is required. Call 403-887-2130 or stop by the library to register. Keep track of your reading progress with a reading passport provided by the library, and enter a weekly draw for awesome prizes donated by local businesses.

Summer Reading Club runs from July 9th to August 16th.
