Summer Reading Club 2017
Summer Reading @ Vancouver Island Regional Library
Summer vacation is almost here and your children are no doubt dreaming about fun times and adventures! But in order to keep your children’s reading skills sharp; it’s also a smart idea to include reading as a part of their summer fun.
Like all skills, a little practice goes a long way. Vancouver Island Regional Library invites kids aged 0 - 12 years to join Summer Reading Club. Participants will embark on a reading adventure at the library with this year’s theme: Walk on the Wild Side! Summer Reading Club encourages children to read a little every day by providing:
• Fun tools, such as colorful reading records, tattoos, stickers and medals.
• Chances to win cool prizes—the more they read, the more chances to win.
Best of all, Summer Reading Club is free and all Summer Reading Club registrants are welcome to participate in the library’s Read Down Your Fines promotion. For every reading record page a child completes, they are eligible to have up to $5 in fines removed from their library account!
Summer Reading Club officially begins July 4th. You can register your children online starting June 15th at www.virl.bc.ca or you can drop by your local branch.
For more information, call or visit your local branch of Vancouver Island Regional Library or visit www.virl.bc.ca. The Cumberland branch can be reached at 336-8121.
Planning a family trip or vacation? Don’t forget that children can borrow from and return books to any of the 39 branches of Vancouver Island Regional Library located on Vancouver Island, Haida Gwaii, and Bella Coola on the central mainland coast. We make it that easy for you!
