Easter Holiday Closure: The ORL will be closed Friday, April 19 through Monday, April 22. Regular hours resume on Tuesday, April 23. Happy Easter!
The Okanagan Regional Library is pleased to announce a wonderful way to make sure your child enjoys some of the best children’s books available at the library!
Beautiful booklists of 100 Books to Read Together Before Kindergarten are available at all library branches for parents and caregivers, or you can view a PDF copy of the booklist online.
These booklists have a literature-based activity and a small prize associated with them. Each book on the list was carefully selected by youth services librarians from across the region.
Parents and caregivers are encouraged to do the following activities with their children aged 0 to 5:
Once these activities are completed, go to your library branch to show the booklist to a staff member and receive a small prize for your family.
Early exposure to books and reading have a multiplying effect on children’s success throughout their school years. Why not enjoy reading with your child now and install that life-long love of reading in them!
Special thanks to the Friends of the Library who have generously covered much of the cost for this fun initiative.
