Join in on OPL’s summer reading fun

The Orangeville Public Library will kick off a summer of reading fun on Saturday, June 22 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Orangeville Farmers’ Market. You can register for the TD Summer Reading Club and receive your notebook to track your summer reads. This is your chance to learn more about the library’s summer programs, take a photo with Emmet the LEGOman, and play games with Amanda and Jessica -- the library’s summer students.  

If you cannot make it out to the Orangeville Farmers’ Market on Saturday, you can register online or by visiting either library location. Reporting is also available online this summer starting July 2. The TD Summer Reading Club is for children age 12 and under. Pre-readers are encouraged to join in on the fun by reading with a parent. The TD Summer Reading Club is an ideal way to keep kids engaged with reading throughout the summer while they are having fun.

New this summer are Escape Rooms for Tweens and Teens. As space is limited, please register online from the home page of the library’s website. The beginner Makey Makey program that explores circuits with laptops, for children age 8 to 12, is back on Mondays. Makey Mondays is the only other summer program that requires pre-registration.

There will be three storytimes this summer: a French - English storytime on Tuesday morning, Every Child Ready to Read with Babies on Tuesday afternoons and the popular Travelling Tales on Thursday mornings. Police, ambulance and fire personnel will be our special guests as we travel to parks around the community. Look for all the dates, locations and times online or pick up a copy of the brochure in the library.  

The Orangeville Public Library offers a wide range of programs for children, youth and adults. For more information regarding the Orangeville Public Library and upcoming events, visit www.orangevillelibrary.ca, Facebook, Twitter or call 519-941-0610. A Visit Will Get You Thinking.
