The Children's section of the new Sardis Library already has some little customers.


rom preschoolers to adults, Fraser Valley Regional Library (FVRL) has a reading club for everyone. All of the clubs are free to join and participants can win fantastic prizes!


Preschoolers to adults are invited to prepare for take-off with this year's summer reading theme "Up, Up and Away".


Kids and preschoolers can take to the skies, voyage through space, and follow authors to other worlds when they join the Kids Summer Reading Club or the Read-to-Me Reading Club. Participants will get a reading record, bookmark and weekly mix-and-match stickers. Children who complete their reading record will be eligible to receive a medal for their efforts.

Teens in grades seven to 12 can read their way to new heights when they join the Teen Summer Reading Club. For every seven days that a teen reads, they become eligible to win one of several amazing prizes, including Samsung Galaxy tablets and $100 Chapters gift cards.

Adults can join their very own club. This year, adults are encouraged to do some uplifting reading. They will receive a reading record to track their reading and, best of all, the chance to win great prizes.

FVRL will be hosting fun free programs and contests all summer long. This is your chance to make your imagination soar. For more Summer Reading Club information, please visit www.fvrl.ca or your closest FVRL location.
