Summer Reading Club
What is the BC Summer Reading Club?
The BC Summer Reading Club is a free reading program for children. It is a great way to practice or improve reading skills over the summer, meet new friends, learn more about your community and library, and have fun!
Who can join?
The BC Summer Reading Club welcomes all children and their families to participate, and seeks to provide a free, accessible, and fully inclusive program.
How do we join?
2020 Update: We anticipate online registration for the BC Summer Reading Club (bcsrc.ca) to open June 15/2020.
Do I need a library card to join the BC Summer Reading Club?
You don’t need a library card to join the Summer Reading Club! If you would like to borrow some books or digital materials, just ask the Chetwynd Public Library staff about getting a library card.
Do I need to be enrolled in a school?
The BC Summer Reading Club is for school-age children (ages 5–14), but you do not need to be enrolled in a school to join. Homeschoolers are welcome to join!
What do children read for the Summer Reading Club?
Children read story books, information books, graphic novels, and even comic books! They read in whatever language they wish, including American Sign Language, and in whatever format they prefer, including audio books. They can also listen to someone else read or tell stories.
The Chetwynd Public Library Library staff will be happy to recommend books and more, for your child to enjoy!
What if we will be travelling this summer?
2020 Update: Join the fun at bcsrc.ca and register online! Track your reading from anywhere and earn digital badges!
Keep reading! If you are traveling within BC this summer, you can visit any public library — all participating libraries have been provided with extra stickers for visitors. If you are travelling out of the province, just let your library know!
