Summer is here, and that means it's time to get outside, play and explore nature with Lambton County Library's summer reading program.

Kid's Summer Reading Program

Visit the library to register for the summer reading program and claim your free summer reading notebook, stickers, and a packet of sunflower seeds for you to plant and grow over the summer.

 Get a sticker for every book that you read, ballots for prize draws, and certificates for your reading all summer long!  Keep reading all through the summer for more chances to win toys and prize bags loaded with fun summer prizes!

And that's not all - come to the library to get up close with animals with Peggy from Heaven's Wildlife Rescue, learn about our local wildlife with the St. Clair and Ausable Bay Conservation Authorities, explore fossils with Bob, and experience a variety of amazing puppet shows with Adam Proulx, the Family Counselling Centre, and Puppets on the Go.
