Summer Fun Passport: Make a Kiwi Crate Project

It's always so exciting to see what surprises are inside the Kiwi Crate. For example, a star hole punch! That's a keeper! And a free (adorable) deck of cards. Not to mention the cool projects inside. Spud had a great time making this lantern yesterday. The star stickers glow in the dark. The tea light shimmers through the coloured vellum nicely. And we learned a bit about constellations.



We've posted about Kiwi Crate before ... here and here.

Summer Fun Passport: Watch the Sunset

This year's sunset viewing got paired up with seeing/hearing Stanley Park's 9 o'clock gun go off. Not only did we get to see the sunset and the cannon boom into the evening, but we also saw a blue heron (or 2) and a few harbour seals, including a babe with its mom. I love my city.

Summer Fun Passport: Go to an Outdoor Concert

This has been on my wish list for years! Finally, we got to see the VSO outside, in the park, and free! It was a treat building summer time memories on a lovely evening, with good people, on an exceptionally warm evening, in the park. Love my city.



And a little Vine video that sums it up in 6 seconds.

Summer Fun Passport: Reading Club

Summer Reading Club at our library is something we look forward to each year — this is our 5th year running. I love how each year a new illustrator is featured. And a new theme is explored with games and activities at the local branches. And weekly contests! Spud has won something every year. Lucky bum. 



At the end of the summer, when you've got 50 days of reading done, you have a little booklet with all the books you've read, as a keepsake ... then they present you with a medal (so cute!) AND you get to go "shopping" at a shelving truck stocked full of a wide range of new books.

I'm not sure what the future holds for libraries. I worry about them. It makes me particularly happy when I see them finding clever, well put together ways to connect with the community. I heart our library. 

I would love to know what sort of summer reading programs other libraries do!
