Club savours reading

Encourage kids to gobble up some great reading this summer.  Children will Savour Each Word when they join the 2011 Summer Reading Club at the Vancouver Island Regional Library’s Sidney/North Saanich branch.

Kids from Kindergarten to Grade 7 can sign up starting today and receive a free registration package. Book prize draws will be held through the summer.

“Regular reading during the summer helps kids to maintain or even improve their reading and literacy skills and studies show that voluntary reading is the number one factor in establishing good reading habits,” said Sharon Walker, library manager. “Summer reading club makes reading fun and our staff can help kids find just the right book.”

The Sidney/North Saanich branch also offers a Read to Me Club for those who cannot yet read independently.  Children receive a special registration package, and families are welcome to attend a weekly storytime program with refreshments and social time afterwards.

Teens may also participate in reading fun with the online Teen Reading Club at www.teenrc.ca.

For more information, contact the Sidney/North Saanich library at 250-656-0944 or check out the website at www.virl.bc.ca.
