Imagine: A Summer of Free Activities

Imagine your summer with TD Summer Reading Club June is nearing an end and it’s time to look for something for the kids to do during the summer. Something inexpensive (free’s even better,) something entertaining, something for a variety of ages, and something out of this ridiculous heat!

No worries, parents and caregivers! St. Thomas Public Library has the solution. The TD Summer Reading Club is almost here! Registration is free – as always – and begins on Tuesday, July 3, 2012. The theme this year is “Imagine.” St. Thomas Public Library has a plethora of drop-in craft and activity programs, Family Movie Mondays, Garden Storytimes, Lego Club, ‘Tween Scenes, a Teen Amazing Reading Race, magic shows, and puppet shows that are sure to stimulate the imagination, even on summer holiday. All for FREE! And in air conditioning! It’s a win-win-win!

When your kids register for the TD Summer Reading Club at St. Thomas Public Library, they’ll receive:Imagine - Anything is possible when you read!

  • A free “Imagine” bag filled with goodies including stickers, temporary tattoos, and a poster
  • An activity booklet with a place to record books read
  • Access to all of those crafts, activities, movies, and programs
  • A chance to win prizes
  • Access to the TD Summer Reading Club website (It’s riddled with jokes, scavenger hunts and games, silly stories, book lists, and other imaginative time passers)

Anything is possible when you read!For a full list of daily activities, visit the St. Thomas Public Library website.

A full list of Family Movie Mondays (with movie info and trailers) can also be found on the library’s website.  Please note that all Family Movies are rated PG and may not be suitable for very young children.
