Courtice Literacy Ship Launch

- Comments: 0

Join Clarington Public Library for the grand launch of the Courtice Literacy Ship!

The Ship is an architectural furniture piece designed to attract families to the Branch’s children’s area. It features interactive play stations that help build children’s early literacy skills.

The Library will be celebrating the launch of the Literacy Ship at a special event and ribbon-cutting ceremony on Wednesday, October 23 at the Courtice Branch (2950 Courtice Rd.). The event starts at 4:00 p.m., with an official ceremony at 4:30 p.m.

The Literacy Ship would not have been possible without the generous support of numerous sponsors, including Ontario Power Generation (OPG), LiUNA Local 183, and Veridian Connections/Elexicon Energy.

For more information, please see our recent press release.

Reading Rangers

[Ages 6 to 9]

Bowmanville Branch
Thursdays, October 17th to December 12th
4:00 to 5:00 p.m.   

Advanced registration required for nine-week session; space is limited. Register online, in person, or by phone.
No charge.

Encourage your children to discover how much fun reading can be! Reading Rangers is a literacy program for children in grades 1 to 3 who need help with reading or are reluctant readers. We pair children one-on-one with student volunteers who help them practice reading skills and play fun literacy games.

Please note that this program is intended to improve literacy skills and interest in reading; it does not teach children how to read.

Please note that caregivers of children under the age of 10 must be present in the Library for the duration of the program.

 

Student Volunteers Needed!

Earn your community service hours required for high school! Please note that a three-month time commitment is required for Reading Rangers.

To sign up or for more information about ways you can volunteer, please visit our Student Volunteer page.
