Now that school is officially out, the library is here to keep students engaged and entertained for the summer.
The Fort Saskatchewan Public Library (FSPL) has events and activities for all ages this summer break with the goal of keeping students reading all summer, so come September they're ready for school.
Reading and learning go hand in hand, even though a program may involve Lego or crafts, hopefully it will challenge the student to read up on a topic related to the activity.
"We just really want to help prevent what's known as the summer slide, where students fall slightly behind in their reading. So anything to keep the children engaged over the summer months is key," explained library director Michele Feser.
The Library offers many programs from battle bots to sing alongs for babies 12 months and under.
A few classes require a call to register, so make sure to check in often for all the fun coming to the library this summer.
