Launch of the 2021 TD Summer Reading Club is around the corner

Have fun and keep busy all summer long with TD Summer Reading Club at Chatham-Kent Public Library.

Join the Club beginning Saturday, June 26.

Sign up at any CKPL branch between June 26 and June 30 and receive a free 3D printed “Game On” keychain! While supplies last.

Chatham-Kent Public Library branches are offering a mixture of Grab & Go and virtual programs for your enjoyment this summer:

Boredom Busters: Enjoy an assortment of activities and library materials to keep your summer boredom at bay! Register online at search.ckpl.ca or at your local branch and pick up your Boredom Buster curbside.

“Are We There Yet?” Going on a road trip? Let CKPL staff know. We’ll give your child library materials and activities that are perfect for the car to make you hear ‘are we there yet?’ a little less frequently.

Walk-a-Story: Read “Duck on a Bike” by David Shannon in communities across Chatham-Kent. Pick up a map to start from the Blenheim, Bothwell, Dresden, Highgate, Merlin, Ridgetown, Thamesville, Tilbury, and Wheatley branches.

Storybook Trail: Head to Crothers Park in Wallaceburg to read “Duck on a Bike” by David Shannon or Kingston Park in Chatham to read “Down by the Sea with Mr. Magee” by Chris Van Dusen.

Virtual Art Gallery: Submit your artwork to be displayed in our virtual art gallery and in your local branch! Submit your work at a CKPL branch or to cklibrary@chatham-kent.ca.

Links to the virtual art gallery will be posted weekly to CKPL’s Facebook page @ckplibrary.

LitBits: Pre-recorded storytime snippets with staff from across CKPL! Posted every Monday morning on CKPL’s Facebook @ckplibrary and YouTube channel.

Zoom Storytime: Songs, rhymes, and stories for preschoolers with staff from across CKPL! Every Wednesday morning at 10:00 am beginning July 7. Register at your local library branch or online at search.ckpl.ca.

Kahoot! Trivia for Kids: Every weekend on Facebook @ckplibrary. Quizzes are released Saturday mornings at 8:00 am and available to play until Sunday evening at 10:00 pm.

Chatham-Kent Public Library has gone fine-free for children. Borrow any children’s material, including books, DVDs, audiobooks, Playaway Views, Launchpads, magazines, Storykits, Play Packs, puzzles, and more, without worrying about late fines.
