Beginning June 1, children in preschool (age 4) to Grade 5 can register for the “Imagine the Possibilities!” BC Summer Reading Club at one of the library branches — City Centre (1169 Pinetree Way) or Poirier (575 Poirier St.) — or via the Library Link.


Young participants will get a booklet to record their reading over seven weeks and, each time they collect a weekly sticker, they can be entered to win a robot or telescope.

At the end of the reading program, successful participants will earn a medal and a voucher for a free DQ Dilly Bar (kids under 3 can also take part with a Read-to-Me booklet).

Meanwhile, students in Coquitlam middle schools can win a prize after completing their first book review; their other reviews will be entered in prize draws held throughout the summer.

And readers over 18 can join the Adult Summer Reading Club by signing up at a branch, the Library Link or online: As with the middle school program, there will be weekly draws for submitted book reviews; a grand prize draw is on Sept. 3.

Adults can also join the inaugural One eRead Canada campaign; this month’s eBook is Glass Beads by Dawn Dumont.
