Building minds book-by-book

A new summer reading club, promises to enhance eager brains in a fun and interactive way, while offering cool prizes.

The Fraser Valley Regional Library is sponsoring this year's 'Build it' Summer Reading Club

This year’s Summer Reading Club theme is ‘Build it’ and there will be tons of opportunities to build imagination all summer long at Fraser Valley Regional Library (FVRL.) The clubs are free to join and readers of all ages can win fabulous prizes. All parents and young readers are encouraged to ban together and make it an event for the whole family.

Preschoolers and school age kids can build great reading habits by enjoying their favourite books and finding new ones, when they join the Read-to-Me Club or the Kids Summer Reading Club. Participants get a reading record, a special bookmark, weekly stickers and chances to win fun prizes. Kids who complete their reading records get a medal.

Teens in grades 7 to 12 will have the distinction of  building their reading repertoire when they join the Teen Summer Reading Club. For every seven days of reading, teens get an entry in the draws for many cool prizes, including the chance to win an IPad mini and $100 Chapters gift cards. Teens can also participate in the #FVRLbookface contest on Instagram. Check out www.instagram.com/readlearnplay for more details.

Adults are also invited to step it up and bring their reading to new heights by joining FVRL’s Adult Summer Reading Club. Adults receive a reading record to track their own reading progress and every week of reading offers more chances to win a host of great prizes.

FVRL hosts fun and innovative free programs and contests all summer long. For more Summer Reading Club information, please visit www.fvrl.ca or contact the Hope Library for more information.
