The Sicamous branch of the Okanagan Regional Library continues to offer a delightful summer escape for kids ages five to 12 with the Summer Reading Club.

The reading club runs Wednesdays, beginning at 10 a.m. (except on Aug. 9, when it starts at 1:30 p.m.), and features contests, weekly book draws, prizes and special entertainment.

On July 20, super superhero fan Bob Evans will be back to teach techniques for drawing popular cartoon characters. On July 27, renowned Shuswap storyteller James Murray will be teaching the art of storytelling through puppets. And on Aug. 9, storyteller/musician Tom McCormack will be performing. McCormack has won international awards for Native American storytelling, and shows are tailored to please adults and children alike.

All of these shows are offered through the free Summer Reading Club, held at the Sicamous library in the new municipal hall on Main Street.
