Introducing the 2021 Kids' Summer Reading Club!
Books in the Park StoryWalk®
Have you ever had to choose between reading a book and going for a walk?
Then we have some good news for you: thanks to RDPL’s Books in the Park StoryWalk®, you don’t have to! Come down to the Dawe Branch on Tuesday afternoons and the Timberlands Branch on Thursday afternoons throughout the summer to read our weekly Book in the Park. We promise that it’ll be a great way to get everyone in your family moving, learning, and enjoying the outdoors together!
Note: StoryWalk® programs may be cancelled due to rain, hail, thunderstorms, or excessive wind. Check our social media pages for updates or call us at 403-346-4576 to confirm!
Family Fun Storytime (Virtual on Zoom!)
Join Miss Claire and Miss Ainsley for stories, rhymes and activity ideas for you and your toddlers and preschoolers live on Zoom!
From June to August, join us on Zoom Tuesday mornings at 10am for our Family Fun Storytime! Not only will we have so much fun reading and singing together, but you can also pick up a Kit to Go at the start of each month from any branch with fun crafts and activities that will pair with the Family Fun theme of the month! Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to get an invite to the storytime!

June Book Bike Tour!
This June, we will be taking RDPL’s Book Bike on a tour throughout Red Deer, coming to the communities that are closest to you!
From June 7-July 2, we will travel around Red Deer on Mondays, Wednesday, and Fridays to answer questions about the Summer Reading Club, hand out “Decorate Your Bike” kits to go, and share Summer Reading Club Out and About challenge sheets.
Pick the location and time that works best for you, and then we’ll meet you there! Better yet, hop on your bike and meet us!
Note: we plan to be there rain or shine (but if it's rainy, you may see us in our pop-up tent rather than on the Book Bike!). However, if the weather is really not on our side and it's pouring rain, hailing, or excessively windy, chances are we will have to cancel! Check our social media pages or call 403-346-4576 the day of the program to confirm.
To follow the Alberta Health Service guidelines, **we cannot have more that 10 people at one time, so check out our schedule and then fill out the form below to let us know when you’ll be joining us for June Book Bike fun.
**Registration will only be required until Stage 2 of the province's reopening plan begins. We will update this page accordingly when registration is no longer necessary.
