Dear Parent,

The [name of your library] invites your child to participate in the [year] BC Summer Reading Club: [theme].

Registration is free and starts at the library on [date]. Children receive a reading record to help keep track of their summer reading fun. And, if they complete the program, they’ll be awarded a medal at the end of the summer!

Regular reading through the summer helps children maintain or improve reading skills while school is out. When they join the BC Summer Reading Club, children are encouraged to read whatever they wish (story books, information books, even comic books!), in whatever language they feel most comfortable. They can also listen to someone else read or tell stories.

[Name of your library] is sponsoring the BC Summer Reading Club, in cooperation with the British Columbia Library Association, with funding from the Libraries Branch, BC Ministry of Education, and the RBC Foundation. For more information, and to learn about our other free summer activities for kids, please contact the [name of your library]. You may also visit the BC Summer Reading Club Kids’ website at www.bcsrc.ca.

Happy reading!
