Summer Reading Club

Two dogs drive a spacecraft and the words Explore our universe, Summer Reading Club 2020Welcome to the 2020 Summer Reading Club! We are now handing out medals to all children who read or were read to this summer! Come visit your library to pick up your medal now!

We hope you've had a great time reading and taking on our weekly challenges this summer! Take a look at some of our awesome challenge entries from this summer.


Check out our Summer Reading Club book picks! All picks were inspired by this year's theme "Explore Our Universe" and include eBooks and print books you can borrow from the library! Read more about our services during the pandemic.


How will the Summer Reading Club be different from previous years? This year, you won't need to pick up or hand in anything to the library to get your medal. Every child who reads this summer can get a medal.

How and when can I get my medal? Come to your nearest BPL branch and staff will direct you on how to safely pick up your medal in September. Staff are following all safety recommendations and the medals are individually wrapped. For more information or questions please contact 604-436-5400. 

What if my child isn't reading yet? Reading and singing to your child will also win them a medal!

What if I want to contact a librarian? Call us at 604-436-5400 or email us at We can answer your questions during our opening hours.
