Revelstoke library's summer reading club participants receive their medals.

Flushed with success after performing a series of skits based on the work of Roald Dahl that they created themselves (with guidance from drama teacher Anita Hallewas), this enthusiastic group of youngsters proudly show off their Summer Reading Club medals, which they earned by following a self directed reading program over the summer that included filling out a reading log provided by the library. Members were also able to attend weekly events that included a kitchen science program that ended with a food fight, a magic show, creating slime, and of course, creating and performing an original play. Members also entered weekly draws to win books and many other prizes.
