Level Up!

Level Up! at Regina Public Library was created to engage children in active skill building, creative exploration and critical thinking during the summer months, a time of high risk for learning loss. In Level Up!, children record every 15 minutes spent reading, participating in free library programs or visiting educational sites like museums or art galleries. Children collect a prize for their first four hours of activity and enter to win prizes for each additional level completed. Level Up! will begin with a kickoff on June 17th at all Branches from 1:00-3:00 pm. Register at any Branch throughout the summer.
