Williams Lake, B.C. – The Cariboo Regional District libraries in 100 Mile House, Quesnel, and Williams Lake invite children of all ages to join this year’s BC Summer Reading Club. The theme for the summer is Imagine the Possibilities.
The program runs from July 2 to August 17. Parents can register for free at the Williams Lake, 100 Mile and Quesnel libraries.
Each week kids will participate in a variety of fun activities, crafts, and story-times based on the theme. Each participant will receive a themed reading record to keep track of the books they read all summer and will be eligible for prize draws. The Summer Reading Club will finish with a celebration party for all participants.
Volunteers are also needed for the program to help with crafts, clean up and provide support for the Summer Reading Club coordinator. Volunteers need to be over 12 years old and will have to complete a criminal record check. This is a neat volunteer experience for teenagers to help build their resume.
About the Summer Reading Club
The BC Summer Reading Club motivates children to read (or be read to) regularly, which helps maintain or improve reading skills while school is out. It makes reading fun by inviting kids to read what they want and when they want. The Cariboo Regional District Library staff can help kids find just what they like, whether it’s a print book, audiobook, e-book, or magazine.
The BC Summer Reading Club reaches more than 85,000 BC children every year. The program is sponsored by the British Columbia Library Association, with financial support from CUPE BC, the Libraries Branch, Ministry of Education and Government of Canada.
