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.
