The Summer Reading Club is getting underway at the Cariboo Regional District’s 100 Mile House, Quesnel and Williams Lake Area libraries.
The program co-ordinators are planning seven-week programs based on this year’s theme “Strange … but true.”
Topics range from unique animals, to things from outer space; from weird science, to incredible true stories — something for children of all ages.
The Summer Reading Club is a free program sponsored by the British Columbia Library Association and is designed for children ages three to 12, to encourage excitement about reading. Regular reading during the summer helps children to maintain, or improve reading and literacy skills.
Registration begins June 12 (100 Mile House); June 23 (Williams Lake) and June 27 (Quesnel) and continues throughout the summer months. Those who are unable to make all the sessions, or are away on vacation for part of the summer, don’t need to worry, as attendance isn’t mandatory for all sessions. The club runs July 3 to Aug. 25. Space is limited so register early.
