Read winter away and win prizes!

January 8, 2020


Vancouver Island, BC: As the rain pours down and the clouds settle in for the long haul, what could be better than cozying up with a good book and a hot drink? Prizes, that’s what could be better, and thanks to Vancouver Island Regional Library’s (VIRL) first ever Adult Winter Reading Club, participants can win some fabulous stuff just by doing something they already love.

“We’re really excited to use the always popular Kids Summer Reading Club as a model for this great winter blues buster for adults,” says Melissa, Legacy, VIRL’s Director of Library Services and Planning. “I hope everyone will participate in this fun and innovative program that encourages our adult customers to get in on reading club fun.”

Participating in the club couldn’t be easier. Simply pick up a reading record at any VIRL branch and record what you read for the months of January and February. Bring in your reading record any time and get a draw ticket for each title recorded for a chance to win weekly book prizes, a $30 gift certificate at a local bookstore, or a Kobo eReader.

Whoever said reading clubs were just for kids? Visit your branch and start reading your way towards some fabulous prizes!

Visit any local branch for more information.
