From Space Voyages to Eco-Science: A Summer of Discovery at the Library

The Wasaga Beach Public Library is set to launch an exciting lineup of free summer activities for all ages, beginning with the much-anticipated Summer Blast-off Party on June 28. This event marks the start of a season filled with adventure, creativity, and learning.

Get ready to launch into an astronomical adventure at the Wasaga Beach Public Library’s Summer Blast-off Party! Join us for a stellar morning filled with cosmic activities and intergalactic fun. The highlight of the event is the Astronomy in Action Space Dome experience. Step into this immersive inflatable planetarium for a guided journey through the universe, witnessing a dark night sky, exploring the planets up close, and flying across the galaxy.

In addition to the Space Dome, attendees can enjoy a variety of space-themed crafts and games, embark on a virtual reality mission, and transform into their favourite space heroes with face painting. Creative balloon animals and delicious treats will keep the energy soaring.

Weekly Summer Program Line-Up

This summer, the Wasaga Beach Public Library will host a series of engaging weekly programs, each designed to inspire creativity and learning while promoting environmental responsibility.

Join us for Sustainable Science workshops, where we delve into the fascinating world of eco-friendly science. These hands-on sessions will teach participants how to repurpose everyday items and recycle materials to create exciting and sustainable projects. From innovative experiments to creative activities, this program is perfect for budding scientists and eco-conscious individuals alike.

Explore imaginative ways to turn trash into treasures with our Summer Crafternoon sessions. Each week, we’ll embark on a new crafting adventure, transforming old bottles into beautiful vases, upcycling cardboard into unique sculptures, and much more. These sessions are designed for all skill levels and ages, promoting creativity while making a positive environmental impact.

This free program, co-created by over 2,000 public libraries nationwide, celebrates Canadian authors and stories, inspiring children to discover the joy of reading in their own unique ways.
