If you’re looking for things to do with the kids, and it’s too hot to go outside, have you dropped by the TD Summer Reading Club website lately? They have plenty of online activities, and also some ideas for you to carry out at home, even on the hottest days.
A few of the great ideas posted today:
- a featured story by Canadian Children’s author Kevin Sylvester
- an eBook you can read right now in your browser
- Jokes for kids, written by kids
- Some reader recommendations
- Drawing lessons for the little ones!
- Book reviews.
- Story starters for those young writers
- Coloring pages
And these change quite often. You can access them through the tab at the top of the TD Summer Reading Club website that says Stuff to Do.
There are also book lists by age, and an online notebook where you can keep track of all of the books your child has read. Just use the special online access code that you received in your bag of items when they registered for summer reading. (If you lost it, drop by the library and we can give you another one.)
Explore some of the great things you can do online!
Not sure how to use your tablet as much as you think you should? Still trying to figure out your new phone? We’re holding another Digital Device workshop next week where you can ask all the questions you have, and share some of your own tricks.
Think of this as Group Tech Tutoring. If you’ve been to a private tech session with Caroline, but need a little more help, try this type of session. You might be surprised at how much you already know, and how you might be able to help someone else.
Please call us to register for the session which happens on Tuesday, March 20 from 2-4pm.
This year, we’re going to offer Digital Device Workshops at the library. These group sessions are great for beginners, or those more experienced. Bring your device along (phone, tablet, computer…whatever), and share your knowledge with the group. There will be plenty of time to learn new skills, ask questions, and meet new people. You’re not in this alone.
If you can’t make it to one of our Tech Tutoring sessions, this is the perfect opportunity to figure out how to use your new device, or just upgrade those skills.
Sessions will take place January 16, February 20, and March 20 from 2-4pm. Please call us to register, or for more information at 257-2702.
