Hey Kids! Look at all the cool stuff we’ve got for you here at the Library!
Kids, buckle your space belts and get ready for the Summer Reading Club! From July 3 to August 17 attend a stellar series of events for all ages featuring Storytime, The Battle of the Books, Reading to Dogs, The Best Book Club Ever and the Grand Finale Deep Space Sleepover. Plus attend workshops like Whip Up a Watercolour, Go Graphic, Rockin' Robot, Dress Up UP and Dance and Dino Day. Cap it all off with the return of the Travelling Puppet Show.

If you are a kid, you can use the computers at the Library. We recommend that you talk with your parents first about using the Library’s computers.
There’s lots of great information and activities that you can find using computers, but you need to be careful, too. Sometimes people will try to harm you or take advantage of you when you use the computer. You can be smart about this by reading up on what to look out for here.
You can read the Library’s policies about children and computers here. Tell your parents that if they have any questions about how you may use computers at the Library, they can ask us anytime.
Check out our Kids Event Calendar to discover what’s happening for kids at the Library. Have any idea for an event or program? Send it to us using Your Feedback on this website or come into the Library to tell us about it.
Want to play some great games? Then this is the place for you!
Here they are. Graphic novels just for you! Graphic novels are very popular these days and the Library now has a separate section for younger readers who enjoy them.
There are plenty to choose from and more to come. You might like to try the BabyMouse series by Jennifer L. Holm or the Bone series by Jeff Smith or Salt Water Taffy by Matthew Loux to name a few.
What’s the difference between graphic novels and comic books? Well, graphic novels tend to tell a complete story even though it’s in comic book form. Comics are short and may be part of a longer series. Some say the difference is in the binding. Some say the first graphic novels were Stone Age cave paintings. In any case, here they are for you to enjoy!
Did you know that we regularly travel around Powell River with a road show edition of our Storytime programs? Currently we visit many daycare centres and at least one Powell River Association for Community Living (PRACL) venue as well. This is the same high quality Storytime that parents take their children to at the Library.
If you want Storytime to come to you, please call the Library at 604-485-4796.
Every summer for as far back as anyone can remember there’s been the Summer Reading Club at the Library. And there will be another Summer Reading Club next summer! You’ll be able to read all about it on this website. As soon as we know the details, so will you.
Past Summer Reading Clubs featured books, games and crafts and special events for school age kids up to 12 years old. That’s a recipe that’s worked and we expect we’ll do it again even better next summer.
We are so lucky! Deb Zagwyn is the artist who made the art for our Kids page and she works at the Library. She has written and illustrated many beautiful books for children; most of them you can borrow from the Library.
Learn more about Deb at her website.
A big thank you to Deb from all of us at the Powell River Public Library!
