The Owen Sound & North Grey Union Public Library will be hosting a launch party for the TD Summer Reading Club on Saturday, June 25 at 10 a.m. Youth set their reading goal, take part in crafts, and can enjoy a cool, refreshing drink. Families who miss the launch party are welcome to register at any point throughout the summer.

With programs for youth of all ages, the Library is a great place to visit this summer. Spaces for some of these programs are limited. To find out more, visit the Library or call 519-376-6623 ext. 5221.
