The Barriere Library invites kids of all ages to join the 2016 BC Summer Reading Club. This year’s theme is ‘Book a Trip’! Registration is free and starts at the library on June 28. Kids receive a special reading record to keep track of their reading. If they finish their reading records and read everyday they’ll be awarded a special Summer Reading Club medal.

Summer Reading Club motivates kids to read (or be read to) regularly, which helps kids maintain or improve their reading skills while school is out. It makes reading fun by inviting kids to read what they want and when they want. The expert staff at Barriere 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 that 155,000 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.
