Summer Reading Club

Help your child succeed in school… Join the Summer Reading Club. Registration starts Friday, June 16 and continues until the middle of July.

Walk on the Wild Side with us this summer!

Children who read over the summer do better in school, and libraries across BC are here to help.  When kids sign up, they will receive a reading calendar, a reading record, a book mark, and stickers.  After reading fifteen minutes a day for fifty days, readers will be rewarded with the highly coveted summer reading club medal. Everyone is welcome at the medal ceremony and pancake breakfast in September.

During the summer, the library offers fun and creative programs, extended loans for travelers, and book recommendations.

FAQs: Can my child enter if we’re not here in the summer? Not a problem.  Registration materials can be picked up at the beginning of the summer and used anywhere throughout July and August.  Medals for children who have completed the program will be available until the end of September. 

What if my child isn’t reading yet?  Children of all ages and reading levels are welcome. Younger children can listen to stories, and we have books and suggestions to help beginners too.  We love matching kids with books!

The Summer Reading Club is sponsored by the British Columbia Library Association and Burnaby Public Library with support from Libraries and Literacy, Ministry of Education. Burnaby Public Library also gratefully acknowledges the support of the RBC Foundation, who provides the medals.
