Summer Reading Club

Do you know about your local libraries’ Summer Reading Club? It is a fantastic, inclusive program for all kids across British Columbia. Your child signs up at your local library, and after tracking all your activities over the summer, they get a medal! Your child can read in any language, and everything counts – reading to your child, listening to audiobooks, or your child can read books, magazines, comics, graphic novels, and more.  

If your child has a learning difference, like dyslexia or ADHD, and struggles with reading, the Summer Reading Club is a great way to boost their confidence and encourage them to explore their special interests.   

Here are some activities that the Vancouver Public Library suggest for readers to engage in: 

  • Read! Enjoy a book, graphic novel, magazine article or comic book. 
  • Listen! Share a story in person, download an audiobook or listen to a podcast. 
  • Write! Compose a story, blog post, or letter to a friend. 
  • Create! Draw an illustration, make a sculpture or bake a masterpiece. 
  • Engage! Attend a program, visit a branch, or explore your own community. 

Completing the Summer Reading Club is a fun short-term goal that will help boost your child’s confidence. Visit your local library and help your child get started.
