About the BC summer reading club

Summer reading club happens every summer at every library in BC. It's for kids in kindergarten through grade 6, and is free to join! BC SRC strives to promote literacy by encouraging kids to read over the summer, keeping their skills fresh for the fall. This year's theme is "World of Curiosities", with artwork by Meneka Repka. If you're unable to join us at the kickoff party, come by the children's department to grab your log, or register and track your reading online, beginning late June.

Read-to-Me club

City Library also has a Read-to-Me club during the summer for kids ages 5 and younger. You can collect your Read-to-Me reading log at the children's department or during the kickoff party.
