Encourage kids to discover great reading this summer!

Children will discover that reading is Strange…

But True when they join the 2012 Summer Reading Club for free at the Vanderhoof Public Library!

Students can sign up at the library starting on June 4th and receive a fabulous free Reading Record, a bookmark, and weekly stickers.

Kids who visit the library will enjoy free programs, contests and displays all summer. Participants who complete their Reading Record will be eligible to receive a special Summer Reading Club medal!

As you know, regular reading during the summer helps kids to maintain or even improve reading and literacy skills and voluntary reading is the number one factor in establishing good reading habits. Summer Reading Club makes reading fun and the staff at the Library can help kids find just the right book or magazine from among a wide variety of library materials.

To find resources and information visit the library website at http://vanderhoof.bclibrary.ca the librarians’ SRC website at kidssrc.bclibrary.ca or the kids SRC website at www.kidssrc.ca

You can also contact the Library for information or to book a tour. Summer Reading Club is a Province-wide program that reaches over 80,000 children across British Columbia every summer and is sponsored by the Vanderhoof Public Library and the British Columbia Library Association with funding assistance from Libraries and Literacy, Ministry of Education.
