Beaverbrook Summer Reading Club Closing Party 2016


This morning was WILD! Thank you to those families who helped us celebrate the end of the TD Summer Reading Club 2016. We had so much fun with you this summer learning all about animals, oceans, monsters, art, bugs and bringing out the WILD in yourself. We will still be counting books read until Friday, September 2nd, so please help us reach our goal of 15,000 books by reporting yours at the Children's Desk. On Thursday, August 25th, over 100 of you visited Beaverbrook to enjoy Chris Pilsworth, our excellent magical guest, eat cake (generously sponsored by the TD bank on Klondike Road), face painting and a few lucky friends even went home with prizes (supported in part by Loblaws -Earl Grey Drive)!

Keep reading! And please see our upcoming Fall programs on the Library's website.
