How BC SRC Works

BC Summer Reading Club is a self-paced program that encourages children to read (or be read to) throughout the summer. BC SRC begins June 28, 2018.

  • Step 1: Visit any GVPL branch and pick up a reading record.

  • Step 2: Read for a minimum of 20 minutes every day.

  • Step 3: Each day, write down one thing you’ve read on your reading record – just use one line per day so you don’t run out of room before the end of the summer.

  • Step 4: After you’ve read for seven days, visit the library to collect your weekly prize.

  • Step 5: Repeat steps 2 to 4. Keep up the great work!
