Children’s Programming

Family Storytime :::Introduce kids to the love of books and language. Stories, songs, rhymes and more. Storytime prepares children to learn to read. Help grow a love of reading fun stories, songs, and rhymes for the whole family.

Summer Reading Program is for children of all ages. In June stay tuned for activities throughout the summer. Visit the the library to pick up a copy of our Summer Reading Club newsletter or contact us for more information.

Pick up your reading log at the library. Each day, you read a page, a book, or a graphic novel, listen to an audiobook, and colour the circle in your reading log. ALL READING & LISTENING COUNTS!!! When you have read seven days, pop by the library for your SRC weekly sticker. Read and Repeat. Collect all seven stickers and receive an SRC Medal and completion certificate.

Earn digital badges and record reading progress with the bcsrc app  You can also browse the lists of SRC reading resources linked to the library catalogue for reading suggestions and ideas. For safety purposes, all account data from previous years is deleted, and even if your child participated last summer, caregivers will need to recreate accounts for each child.
