Kids invited to join Summer Reading Club

Summer Reading Club motivates kids to read (or be read to) regularly, helping to maintain or improve reading skills

Thompson-Nicola Regional District

TNRD Library System invites kids of all ages to join the 2016 B.C. Summer Reading Club. This year’s theme is Book A Trip.

Summer Reading Club motivates kids to read (or be read to) regularly, helping to maintain or improve reading skills during the summer months while school is out. The club makes reading fun by inviting kids to read what they want, and by inviting kids back to the library for fun related activities throughout the summer.

The expert staff at TNRD Library branches can help kids find just what they like, whether it is a book, graphic novel, audiobook, e-book, or magazine.

Registration is free and begins at your nearest library branch in mid-June. Kids receive a special reading record to keep track of their reading, and a sticker to place in their record for every seven days they read. If they meet their personal reading goal every day for seven weeks, they will be awarded a special Summer Reading Club medal.

For those too young to read, the TNRD Library System offers the Read-to-Me Club, which provides families with a chance to track their daily reading together over a seven-week period. Children can colour in the days someone reads to them on their reading record to receive stickers and a chance to win prizes.

For those 12-18, the Teen Summer Challenge offers a variety of activities to be completed for points and a chance to win awesome prizes.

Summer Reading Club, Read-to-Me, and Teen Summer Challenge will begin July 4. For more information, and to learn about other free library programs, contests, and activities for kids throughout the summer, call or visit your local library branch.

 

Summer Reading Club reaches more than 85,000 kids in B.C. every summer. The program is sponsored by the British Columbia Library Association, with financial support from the Libraries Branch, the Ministry of Education, and the RBC Foundation.
