Bears, and ravens, and whales, oh my! Discover the wonderful, wacky world of nature when you Walk on the Wild Side with FVRL’s 2017 Summer Reading Clubs. There is a club for everyone! Visit your local Delta Library to join.

 

There’s the Read To Me Club for children, aged 0 – preschool.  Parents/caregivers share stories with their young ones and help them mark their reading records so they can collect stickers, win prizes and receive a medal.

 

Kids in grades K – 6 are challenged to scale to new heights with Summer Reading Club 2017 by joining and receiving their reading record designed by BC artist Darlene Gaits.  Enter to win prize draws, earn a medal and come to fun shows (see below!).  Just read every day!

 

If you are a Teen in grades 7 – 12, all we ask is that you Read. Record. Repeat.  It all begins when you pick up your own Teen Summer Reading Club 2017 reading record.  There will be lots of chances for you to win fantastic prizes too!

 

And Adults?  There is a reading record for you too.  Like everyone else, you mark your reading record and enter weekly prize draws. The more you read, the more chances you have to win.

 

What are those fun shows for children in grades K – 6?  The following performers will be entertaining at the George Mackie Library.  Please note:  Tickets are now required.  Free tickets will be available at the George Mackie Library beginning a week prior to the show.  See the individual shows below for details.
