This summer, kids will take to the skies, voyage through space, and follow authors to other worlds. The Barriere Library invites kids of all ages to join the fun, by joining this year’s BC Summer Reading Club: Up, Up and Away! Sign-up is free and starts at the library on June 25. Kids receive a special kit to keep track of their reading. If they read for 15 minutes a day throughout the summer, they’ll be awarded a collectible medal.
The Summer Reading Club motivates kids to read regularly (or be read to), so it helps to maintain or improve reading skills while school is out. It makes reading fun, too, by inviting kids to read what they want. The library staff can help kids find just what they like, whether it’s a print book, audiobook, e-book, or magazine.
The Summer Reading Club reaches more than 85,000 B.C. kids every summer, and is sponsored by the British Columbia Library Association, with funding assistance from Libraries and Literacy, Ministry of Education.
