Up, up and away this summer

Vancouver Island Regional Library program helps imaginations take flight

This summer, kids across the province will take to the skies, voyage through space and follow authors to other worlds.

The Vancouver Island Regional Library invites kids of all ages to join the fun by participating in this year’s B.C. Summer Reading Club: Up, Up and Away.

Sign-up is free and can be done online at http://virl.bc.ca/kids/books-stories/summer-reading-club. Kids receive a special kit to keep track of their reading. If they complete their reading log they are awarded a collectible medal. The club helps to maintain or improve reading skills while school is out by motivating kids to read (or be read to). It also makes reading fun by inviting kids to read what they want.

The expert staff at local library branches can help kids find just what they like, whether it’s a print book, audiobook, eBook or magazine. The Summer Reading Club reaches more than 85,000 B.C. kids every summer.
