Children who read over the summer do better in school, and libraries across BC are here to help. When kids sign up, they will receive a reading record, a book mark, and stickers. After completing your reading goals for seven weeks, readers will be rewarded with the highly coveted summer reading club medal. Everyone has a chance to receive a medal!
Weekly Craft Tutorials
What does the Summer Reading Club look like this year?
This year, things will definitely be different. We’re all excited about the launch of our first ever BC Summer Reading Club app where kids can track their weekly reading goals online. Through this app, your child can expect to find fun games, activities, instructions for crafts, and book suggestions! It’s still completely possible to have a physical reading log, just come to the library any time we’re open to pick one up!
Sign up is simple, once you create an account through the BC Summer Reading Club Page, you can sign your children up using a nickname. Once you’re all signed up and signed in, your child will have access to their online Summer Reading Log, where they can check off whether they have completed their reading goal of the day. After completing your goal for 7 days, you’ll receive a badge!
Even though we won’t be meeting weekly like previous years, we will still be having activity days! This summer, you can look forward to social distanced meetings in the park, where we may play games or read a story together. We also have planned a community wide scavenger hunt, something we’ll be releasing soon! The Salmo Library is also planning on uploading videos in the future, recorded by our Summer Reading Club coordinator. These videos will be including things like craft tutorials or a pre-recorded story. We will also be meeting online through zoom to play fun games or talk about how our crafts are going. The possibilities this year are endless!
Starting July 7th and ending August 20th
Can my child enter if we’re not here in the summer? Not a problem. Registration materials can be picked up at the beginning of the summer and used anywhere throughout July and August. Medals for children who have completed the program will be available until the end of September.
What if my child isn’t reading yet? Children of all ages and reading levels are welcome. Younger children can have stories read to them, and we have books and suggestions to help beginners too. We love matching kids with books!
I want to participate in SRC, but do not want to register online. What do I do? You can still participate in the weekly activities and you can connect with your local library to find out about picking up a print reading record, or you can print the 11×17 print-at-home version here or the 8.5×11 simplified version here.
What should my daily reading goal be? This summer, we’ve decided to leave this to be a pretty broad term. Staff at the library would suggest reading one book or chapter a day, but this could be something completely up to you and your child’s reading level!
