A world of summer adventure awaits you at the library

There’s a ton of adventure available for you this summer.

The Red Deer Public Library kicked off its summer reading club, for all age groups, at the end of June.

Books and ebooks can transport us away from our screens and out of our isolation to worlds of adventure, barely imaginable.

Yes, it’s always important to be yourself, but if you can be a pirate, be a pirate. Or an astronaut. The sky’s the limit.

These summer reading clubs are free, and as a bonus, prizes will be given out at the end of summer.

It will keep your children and your inner child occupied and engaged in a positive, healthy way like nothing else can.

Reading a book stimulates creative visualization in our minds that no video game or movie can equal. The library is the best entertainment source in town, bar none.

By the way, in case you didn’t know, the library is now open for curbside pickup. Check out the Red Deer Public Library website for details.
