This summer the Wheatland Regional Library is challenging everyone in the Wheatland  region to get reading and help them reach their goal of 150,000 minutes read! This  reading goal is part of the annual Wheatland Summer Reading Program which is  offered at all Wheatland library branches and has something for everyone in the family. 

“This year we are offering two exciting summer challenges and we encourage everyone  to join in the fun and help us reach our reading goal. The Summer Reading Program is  not just for children, we have activities and challenges for teens and adults too” says  Katie McKay-Argyriou, Program Manager for the Wheatland Regional Library. 

The two challenges being offered are the TD Summer Reading Club for children ages 0- 13 and the Wheatland Summer Fun Challenge which is open to all ages, both run from  June 14 to September 7. The Wheatland Summer Fun Challenge has been created to  encourage you to try some new activities this summer. “This challenge is about fun for  the whole family! Summer is such an exciting time in Saskatchewan and we want to  enhance that by offering creative and engaging activities that everyone can do” explains  McKay-Argyriou. 

The TD Summer Reading Club focuses on reading and is a great way to encourage  kids to continue to build their literacy skills over the summer months. The TD Summer  Reading Club has been offered by local libraries for a number of years but this year  there is a new virtual way to participate. People can register for both of the Wheatland summer challenges using Beanstack, which is an online reading and activity tracker.  Visit our website at wheatland.sk.ca and click on “Summer Fun” to sign up, or download  the free Beanstack app to register. 

“There are so many great things happening throughout our region this summer. Be sure  to stop by your local library or visit our website to find out more about the summer  challenges, take home crafts, virtual programs and Storybook Trail events” shares  McKay-Argyriou.
