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. Saturday, September 7th.
During the summer, the library offers fun and creative programs and great 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!

Check out the ASL welcome to the Summer Reading or use one of the other languages available here to promote summer reading. Also available is the BC Summer Reading Club website for great booklists, fun puzzles and more.
