The Courtenay Library invites kids of all ages to join the 2014 BC Summer Reading Club.
This year’s theme is Funny Business!
Registration is free and began July 2. You may register on-line at the Vancouver Island Regional Library’s website www.virl.bc.ca or register at your local library branch. Kids receive a special reading record to keep track of their reading. When they finish their reading log, they’ll be awarded a special Summer Reading Club medal at the wind up party.
Summer Reading Club motivates kids to read (or be read to) regularly, so it helps to maintain or improve reading skills while school is out. It makes reading fun by inviting kids to read what they want. The expert staff at Courtenay Library can help kids find just what they like, whether it’s a print book, audiobook, e-book, or magazine.
Summer Reading Club reaches more than 85,000 B.C. kids every summer. The program is sponsored by the British Columbia Library Association, with financial support from Libraries Branch, Ministry of Education and the RBC Foundation. In the Comox Valley more than 700 kids have joined the program.
In addition to the Summer Reading Club there is a whole host of other fun summer programs for kids – story times, craft times, puppet shows, Lego Tuesdays, quizzes and so much more! Please drop by your library branch for your free program of summer activities for kids!
For more information, and to learn about other free library programs, contests and activities for kids, call your local library branch or visit VIRL’s website at www.virl.bc.ca.
