Wheatland Regional Library Summer Reading Challenge!

This summer, Wheatland Regional Library is challenging everyone get reading and help  reach their goal of 1,000,000 minutes read! This reading goal is part of the annual  Wheatland Summer Reading Program which is offered at all Wheatland library  branches. 

“Last year we met our initial goal in the first few weeks of the summer!” says Desirae  Munro, Program Manager for the Wheatland Regional Library. “The summer is a great  time to read and enjoy what the Wheatland region has to offer. We encourage everyone  to join in the fun and help us reach our 1,000,000 minutes goal.” 

There are two challenges being offered this year, 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 20 to September 9. 

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 is offered by local libraries across Canada to inspire kids of all interests  and abilities to explore the fun of reading their way. “The Wheatland Summer Fun  Challenge offers an opportunity for everyone to read, watch, explore and get creative on  their own or with family and friends” shares Munro. People can register for both of the Wheatland summer challenges using Beanstack, which is an online reading and activity  tracker.
