BRAMPTON: Every year, Brampton Library draws together readers of all ages to participate in three summer reading clubs – Brampton Brain Game, for children from birth to age 12; Teen Summer Reading Club and Adult Summer Reading Club.
The library has now announced the clubs’ grand prize draw winners. By completing online challenges, 14 lucky participants won grand prizes generously sponsored by the Brampton Real Estate Board.
Brampton Brain Game participant Abhi registered for Summer Clubs before July 8 and won the early bird registration prize – a bike donated by the Region of Peel, Sustainable Transportation.
For the first time, Summer Reading Clubs were completely digital this year. Core activities like book chats, reading logs, programs, and challenges were online for participants to enjoy from home.
“We had great engagement with our Summer Clubs, considering that the online format was completely new for customers and staff,” says Kate Alatsas, Manager, Children & Youth.
“Combined, Teen and Adult Summer Reading Club participants logged 4,367 books between June 1 and September 8, 2020! Our online programs were a hit too. At Home Trivia has even been extended into the fall.”
Given the popularity of online programs and services and the continued need for social distancing, customers can look forward to a variety of digital programs offered through 2020.
