Registration is now open for the Fraser Valley Regional Library’s 2019 Summer Reading Club.
Bring all family members to pick up a reading record and then record each day that you read for 15 minutes or more. You can read at home, in the library, on a beach – anywhere. Once you have recorded seven days of reading, come back to the library for stickers and prizes.
The 2019 Summer Reading Club also features a number of events at local libraries:
