Kids’ Summer Reading Club – all Libraries
Jul 1 – Aug 31 all-day

Get ready kids! The Library’s Summer Reading Club “Walk on the Wild Side!” will start July 1st.

Come by the Library to sign-up and get your own free notebook to keep track of the books you read in July & August. Collect fun stickers & bookmarks, and proudly receive your very own Reading Medal at the end of the summer.

Parents: regular reading throughout the summer helps kids maintain or improve reading skills while school is out. Kids are encouraged to read lots of books, and to listen to someone read to them. We look forward to seeing you and your family at the Library this summer.

Meet your favourite BC animals in our Summer Reading Club 2017 and take a Walk on the Wild Side!
