Take your grandkids to the Quesnel Library

A reading program a the Quesnel Library takes children on a variety of literary journeys.

Grandparents, if you want something really fun for your little ones, taking in this free program at the Quesnel Library will be most enjoyable for the whole family. It begins July 5 and registration is ongoing.

Every Tuesday – Friday, Freya Jonasson will greet the children. 3 – 5 years old start at 10:15 a.m., 6 – 8 years at 11:30 a.m. and the 9 –12 years group comes in at 2 p.m. It will build their imagination and encourage them to read. The themes are Play around the world; Planes, trains and automobiles; Explore your back yard; Discover the Universe; Travel using your imagination; Wander into the past which includes dinosaurs; and Tour the World.

Children will be given a reading project each week, so you grandparents can help with that. They also get a prize for completing the project.

Then there are games, crafts and activities.

This program is funded by the CRD, BC Library Association, Libraries Branch, Ministry of Education and RBC Foundation.

A special day, July 13 children will participate in: Massive mark up – 3D printing; pop bottle races; coding; and drawbot.

These pictures will give you an idea of how fun it will be.
