Library Summer Programming
A ton of activities will be taking place this summer for children of all ages at the Vermilion Public Library. The next big one will take place July 12, when they host Mary Lambert who will perform a children’s musical show, “Sing Out Summer Fun.”
Their Summer Reading Program kicked off July 3, and children aged 5-12 who read 500 minutes by August 26, will have a chance to earn prizes.
Teens (13+) or adults will have a chance to test out some video games during their Virtual Reality sessions July 17 - 22, from 11:30 a.m. - 6:30 p.m. To book a one-hour time slot you can call (780)853-4288 or stop by the library to sign up. Anyone under the age of 18 will need to have a waiver signed by their parent or guardian before using the equipment.
Another teen activity will be D&D on July 22, from 3 - 6 p.m. in the library basement. Children aged 13-17 can create a Dragon of Icespire Peak character (no experience necessary), and pizza is included. However space is limited, so to find out more or to register, you can visit https://www.vplibrary.ca/programs/d-d.
Family Storytime will continue Mondays at 10:30 a.m. Lego Drop-in will take place July 17, or August 14, at 1:30 p.m.
On July 31, children aged 9 - 12 who register online will have a chance to create two 3D art projects and participate in the Amazing Animal Trivia Game from 1:30 - 3:00 p.m.
Another favourite will take place August 2, but this time outside the library and down by the Trout Pond at the Vermilion Provincial Park. Wetland Explorers: Buggin’ Out will start at 10:00 a.m. for children ages 5-12 accompanied by an adult (again, please register online). The fun will include a scavenger hunt, net-dip, and watershed presentation.
