It makes reading fun by inviting kids to read what they want and when they want. The expert staff at [your library name] can help kids find just what they like, whether it’s a print book, audiobook, e-book, or magazine.

The BC Summer Reading Club is sponsored by the British Columbia Library Association, with financial support from Libraries Branch, Ministry of Education, and the RBC Foundation.
