Where do you go when the sun is hot, the kids are wanting to do something fun and you’re looking for an economical outing? Your community library, of course!

Caledon Public Library is once again gearing up for a summer full of innovative programs and lively events for kids of all ages. The air conditioner is on and the staff is ready to welcome you to the coolest place in town!

Teens are looking forward to our 5th annual book war. That’s right – Battle of the Books is back and we hope you’re ready! CPL has selected 8 titles to compete against each other until one book is left standing. It’s anybody’s guess which title will ultimately wear the “BOTB crown!”

Teens are invited to read one, some, or all of the books and vote for their favourite either online or in person at any of our seven branches.

The TD Summer Reading Club encourages kids ages 10 and under to escape their everyday, step outside their ordinary and seek the unknown through reading. This year’s theme is WILD so listen to the unexplored calling and get wild at your library with incentives such as stickers and prizes as well as great programs. And let’s not forget that there is a Summer Reading Club for Tweens, Teens and even Adults! This summer is so wild that we’re inviting you to go on safari at all seven branches!

Caledon Public Library has adopted Ember the Lynx from the Toronto Zoo and she is playing hide-and-go-seek with 7 of her friends. They’re scattered across Caledon Public Library and we hope you can help find them all.

And that’s not all. Here are just some of the other library programs happening during those blissful summer days: Harry Potter Movie Madness, Discovery Club, Character Hunt (some more hide-and-seek fun), Brain Freeze, Board Games, Lego and Crafternoons, Building Resiliency for Girls, and Ringtail Ranch and Rescue, plus so much more! Check out the latest details about all summer happenings online or in any of our seven branches.

Caledon Public Library’s Click.Create.Celebrate contest is back with categories for all ages: Short Story, Poetry and Photography (with 3 new categories adult, teen, and children). The contest is open until September 10, with awards being announced at the historic Alton Mill on October 28. The summer is shorter than you think – start writing and snapping those pics now!

Last but by no means least, adults of all ages are assured of a warm library welcome at any time of year. Adult book clubs meet throughout the summer, as does Knit & Knatter and the Alton and Margaret Dunn Valleywood chapters of Writers’ Ink. If it’s assistance with your iPad or computer, look no further than our Information Technology Department. The word is out – Caledon Public Library is the place to be this summer. Stay cool and check us out!
