Summer Reading Club
Since 1990 the British Columbia Library Association and local public libraries have sponsored a provincial Summer Reading Club which encourages summer reading and public library use by school-age children and families in BC, encouraging them to do their very best and to set their own reading goals.
Dust off your wings and strap on your jetpacks! This summer, the SRC theme is Up, Up and Away! Kids ages six through twelve throughout British Columbia will take to the skies, voyage through space, and follow authors to other worlds. Aspiring aeronauts will launch their careers, young Padawans and superheroes will rise to the occasion, and fans of fantasy will be floating on air. Summer Reading Club this summer, registration begins June 14. Vancouver Public Library also invites school age children to join the Multilingual Summer Reading Club - read books in any language!
This year's Summer Reading Club illustrator is Eliska Liska. She illustrated Suzie’s Sourdough Circus by Kathy Sager and is currently at work on My Grandma Loves Hockey by Lori Weber. Summer Reading Club members will receive a reading record, bookmark, and stickers to collect. Children can record the titles and authors of the books they read on the reading record. It's lots of fun and absolutely free!
