How does it work?

Register: Register at your local library starting June 17th just by picking up a reading record! You can also participate online through BCSRC.

Read every day: For the 7 weeks of Summer Reading Club, children read, or are read to, every day. They can read whatever they want, whenever they want, for however long they want. All reading counts!

The benefits:Reading helps children develop important skills that make them more successful in school and in life. Our goal is to get children engaging with reading by making it fun.

All reading is valuable: Whether it’s an audiobook, a graphic novel, a comic book, or a magazine, it all helps – and it all counts as reading!

Earn prizes: For every 7 days that a child reads, they earn a sticker and an entry into the Grand Prize draw. If they read every day for all 7 weeks of summer reading club, they also earn a medal and a certificate.

We’re flexible: If your child misses a couple days, don’t worry! We run summer reading club from July 1st to August 24th, which gives children 8 weeks to accomplish their reading. They can catch up on missed days! The deadline to enter the prize draw is August 31st, so be sure to visit your library before then!

Want more of a challenge? Come to the library each week to pick up an optional challenge bookmark and earn more entries into the grand prize draw.
