Saturday July 18th is “Family Day” at the popular Farmers Market in North Gower and there will be plenty to see and do … including a visit to the Friends of the North Gower Library table, staffed by volunteers, inside the Big Red Barn.
We will have registration kits for the TD Kids Summer Reading Club which you can then take to the Library (it will be open Saturday 10-2!), and get a head start on your children’s/grandchildren’s summer reading.
When you visit the Library be sure to look at the tote board for the friendly competition among three local branches: Richmond, Munster and North Gower are all vying to see whose kids can read more books this summer. (Munster is currently leading—THAT has to change!)
Prizes are awarded weekly at the Library — just fill out a ballot with the number of books read, and staff do a draw at the end of each week.
Don’t have a card? Volunteers will also have the kits for you to fill out and drop off at the Library so you can get YOUR Library card, and access to all the services. Did you know that Library patrons can access Ancestry.ca for free? That’s worth about $30 a month, alone.
Did we mention “fun”? We will have a giant jar of jelly beans—guess how many are in it, and YOU win the JAR!
Last, but not least, Councillor Scott Moffatt ( a father of four!) will be our celebrity guest reader for a special Family StoryTime on Family Day at the Market. Storytime starts at 11:30 a.m.—don’t miss it!!
The Market runs from 8:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. Saturday.
