Virtual Summer Reading 2020

The summer of 2020 looks different.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are unable to offer an in-person summer program for the children in West Perth.  Our summer program co-ordinator Andria has created the following exciting activities! Imagination Kits and a Virtual Summer Reading Room.

Imagination kits will replace the usual in-person Summer Reading Program that is held each summer. These kits are free and the only requirement is that the participant has a library card! These kits will be distributed as part of the curbside pick-up at the Library. Each Imagination Kit will contain:
  • 2-4 books (to be signed out on child's library card)
  • a craft
  • a reading challenge
  • literacy activities
  • a science experiment or STEM activity

The Imagination Kits are recommended for ages 3-12. Each participant will receive kits customized for their age.
There will be new kits bi-weekly. Dates to launch new kits are:
  • June 29 (deadline to order is June 29)
  • July 13 (firm deadline to order is July 12 @ 11:59 pm)
  • July 27 (firm deadline to order is July 26 @ 11:59 pm)
