Summer Reading Club 2018: Curious Creatures
Summer holidays are a great time for sun, sea and games, but whether you are lying on a beach towel, or swinging in a hammock on a lazy afternoon, summer is also a great time for reading. And like previous summers, the Summer Reading Club means that you can earn some nifty prizes just for reading. To join, all you have to do is sign up at your local library and note down how many books you have read in your book log. This year's theme is Curious Creatures, so there are also a ton of monster games, quizzes and activities for you, and we are sure you are all curious to see what amazing Creature surprises we are giving out.
This is not all though: SRC members are eligible to attend our Members Only Special event Mad Scientist Mummy - Microbes in Action taking place on 22 January 2019. The Mad Scientist Mummy will show you the fascinating world of the teeny-tiny little curious creatures, that are all around us, but never even noticed.
For parents, SRC is a great way to keeps kids reading and developing literacy skills through the long school break.
For more information, contact your local Stirling Library. For details of our Mad Scientist Mummy events, see below, but bookings can only be made for SRC members at our libraries.
