Sign up for summer reading clubs

The TNRD Library System is offering summer reading clubs again this year for children and teens.

The TNRD Library System is once again inviting children to join the Summer Reading Club, which this year runs from Tuesday, July 2, to Saturday, Aug. 24, and has as its theme “Up, Up and Away.”

As in years past, the TNRDLS will be offering free Reading Clubs for all levels of readers to join. There will be a Read-To-Me Club for emerging readers (toddlers to Age 5), a Summer Reading Club for children ages 6 to 12, and a Teen Reading Club.

When children sign up for the program they will receive a reading log to record their summer reading as well as weekly stickers. They will also be able to participate in fun activities and exciting contests for great prizes. Every reader that completes the program will receive a special award, too.

Grand prizes for the Summer Reading Club (ages 6-12) will be either a helicopter ride courtesy of C.C. Helicopters, or a “Funky Reading Corner.”

Teens do not need to register as their club will be conducted entirely via Twitter at @TNRDTeenRC. Teens can go the tnrdlib.ca to learn more.

Children can register for the Summer Reading Club on the following dates: Tuesday, June 25, at Ashcroft, Cache Creek, and Clinton libraries, and the Bookmobile; Wednesday, June 26, at Lytton and Savona libraries; and Tuesday, July 2 at Logan Lake Library.

Don’t forget to attend the official opening of the new Cache Creek Library on Wednesday, June 26 from 2-4 pm. Light refreshments will be available and the Time Capsule will be unveiled. The new library is located on Hwy 1 next to the Royal Bank.
