Calling all kids ages 12 and under! Join the Club and CRACK THE CASE!

Starting June 29, children ages 12 and under (or their parent or caregiver) are invited to visit any GVPL branch to collect a 2021 BC Summer Reading Club package.

The BC Summer Reading Club runs from June 29 to September 7, 2021. This incentive program helps kids build their confidence in reading while having fun and developing stronger connections with their public library. From summer booklists to virtual programs and much more, GVPL will be there every step of the way. Studies have shown that children attending the Summer Reading Club tend to do better in school come the fall – which is another great reason to join the Club.

This year, BC Summer Reading Club (BC SRC) has a mystery theme – ‘Crack the Case’ and features artwork from Vancouver-based cartoonist and illustrator, Zoe Si.

How BC SRC Works:

  • Participants read every day for at least 20 minutes and record their reading activity in the reading record.
  • After one full week of reading, participants choose a sticker and match it to their record.
  • Then, do it all over again. The goal is to complete seven weeks.
  • At the end of seven weeks, visit any GVPL library branch and collect a final prize.

For an online summer reading club program, visit Kids can earn virtual badges and take part in online weekly activities!
