Canby Summer Reading Program has plenty to see and do this summer

The program has begun but there is still time to sign up and get involved with the annual program


by: SUBMITTED PHOTO - Jugglemania will perform at the library Friday at 11 a.m.The Canby Public Library’s roster of summer reading events continues through Aug. 8.

Under the motto “Fizz, Boom READ,” children of all ages and adults can all play the Summer Reading game. Reading through the summer break is a great way for kids to keep up on their reading skills.

In addition to being good for school, there are also some fun incentives. By reading (or being read to) for 25 hours, children earn a free book plus coupons for the North Clackamas Aquatic Park, Oaks Park and the Portland Trailblazers.

Weekly events will include a sword fighting demonstration, juggling, puppet shows, music, story times and a mini science camp.

The hope is that the science camp will attract even those who generally might not enjoy reading.

A short book review will entitle participants to enter a weekly drawing for prizes donated by Roth Heating and Cooling.

This year, Canby Public Library is partnering with the Canby School District Summer Food Program. Every weekday from July 21 to Aug. 29, sack lunches will be served at the library from 12 to 12:30 p.m.

This program is open to all children ages 1–18. Registration is not required.
