Great mix of youth events happening at Gibsons Library this summer

Writer and journalist Caitlin Moran has said that a library is “a cross between an emergency exit, a life raft and a festival”, and that is the flavour of what the Gibsons Library will be serving up for children, youth and families this summer.

In addition to our weekly summer reading club (for kids finished K – Gr. 3), we are introducing a new story buddies program in which little buddies (K & Gr. 1) will be paired with big buddies to co-create their very own picture book to read, cherish, and share.

For children in Gr. 4, 5, 6 or 7 we are offering an improv theatre camp in July and a flash fiction writing camp in August. We are also hosting weekly tech time drop-ins for kids interested in coding and computing, dj’ing sessions for aspiring DJs to learn from a pro, a monthly avid readers club where keen readers can make book recommendations to other young readers and as always, the chance to volunteer as youth leaders.

While high school students are welcome to some of the above offerings, we have also added events specifically for teenagers and young adults this summer including: wellness Wednesdays, a youth voices open-mic night, a university life panel where candid questions can be asked and answered, and a dice & dragons fantasy games drop-in which will kick off with a dungeon master training session on July 5.

Families are invited to join the fun at our monthly storytimes (for 2-5 years olds), Lego builders club (for all ages), and reading log celebration.

All offerings are free but space is limited so register early. Visit the library or our website for more information. But remember, even in the midst of all this activity, the library remains a great place to just slow down and take a break from the summer heat. Hope to see you there., 604-886-2130.
