August 11, 2020

We are so excited that so many of you have joined us for the Virtual Summer Reading Club! Participation for the Club has been phenomenal this past week with 66 new registrations, for a total of 950 signups and counting! And the fun isn’t over yet.

Our SRC event calendar is packed with a number of upcoming events sure to entertain readers of all ages.

Upcoming events:

Wednesday, August 12 @ 2:30 p.m.: Astronomer Rachel Wang will be live answering questions like “How many stars are there in the Universe?” and “What do stars eat?” Learn what to look for in our summer nighttime sky, and what would happen if you fell into a black hole!

Thursday, August 13 @ 2 p.m.: Award-winning author Nadia L. Hohn will join us for a Story & Activity Time. Nadia will be reading from her most recent book A Likkle Miss Lou and leading us in a poetry activity. Have your craft and writing supplies ready!

Friday, August 14 @ 2 p.m.: Father-daughter duo Jeremy and Hermione Tankard will introduce Yorick and Bones, the first book in their rib-tickling, heartfelt full-colour graphic novel series.

Tuesday, August 18 @ 2 p.m.: A virtual performance by one of Canada’s best-loved children’s performers, Rick Scott. Enjoy Rick’s music, storytelling and humour with themes of family, community, curiosity and friendship.

To participate in these events, head over to our Summer Reading Club Facebook Group.

SRC medals are on their way!

Little readers have been busy keeping track of their progress over the summer and can soon celebrate their achievements with an authentic SRC medal.

Medals will be available for pickup through the first week of October, due to the September 30 extension completion time available to families through the BC SRC website.
