Cool off with reading clubs
From pre-schoolers to adults, Fraser Valley Regional Library (FVRL) has a reading club for everyone.
All of the clubs at branches such as Terry Fox Library in Port Coquitlam are free to join and participants can even win prizes. Registration for the clubs begins in mid-June and FVRL will be hosting fun, free programs, contests and displays all summer long.
Pre-schoolers and kids in kindergarten to Grade 6 are invited to “Savour Each Word” and gobble up some great reading this summer by joining the annual Kids Summer Reading Club. Participants will get a reading record, bookmark and weekly stickers. Kids who complete their reading record will be eligible to receive either a ribbon (pre-schoolers) or a medal (Grades K to 6).
Teens in Grades 7 to 12 can discover how tasty a good book can be as they “Savour Each Word” when they join the Teen Summer Reading Club. Teens who join will receive a reading record and bookmark. For every seven days that a teen reads, they will receive an entry ballot to win one of several amazing FVRL prizes, including laptop computers, digital camcorders and eBook readers.
Not to be left out, adults are being offered their very own club. This year, adults can “Read for Luck.” They will receive a reading record to track their reading, fortune cookies stuffed with literacy quotations and the chance to win prizes.
