Although Saskatoon Public Libraries are closed, we are excited to have now launched our online summer programs. Your local residents may want to do some of these summer programs with their families.
Knowlympics – June 1 – August 31
The Knowlympics is an all-ages summer learning program that encourages Saskatoon residents to discover a love of lifelong learning through various challenges that promote various forms of literacy development.
TD Summer Reading Club – June 1 – August 31
The TD Summer Reading Club (TDSRC) is Canada’s biggest bilingual summer reading program for kids. SPL has presented the TDSRC for a number of years but it will be presented slightly differently this summer.
