Walk on the Wild Side Summer programs for kids 12 and under June 29-August 31

How Summer Reading Club Works

Take a walk on the wild side with GVPL’s Summer Reading Club! Whether you’re reading at home or on holidays, you can track your daily reading on your reading record and enjoy weekly incentives along the way. Staying in town? GVPL offers free library programs at branches throughout Greater Victoria.

Summer Reading Club is a self-paced program that encourages children to read (or be read to) throughout the summer.

Drop by any library branch to pick up a self-paced reading record any time during the summer. Program registration begins June 29 at gvpl.ca or 250-940-4875.

Step 2: Read for a minimum of 20 minutes every day.

SRC travelling puppet shows are back by popular demand! Join puppeteers for camps, workshops and performances throughout the summer. Check the program calendar at gvpl.ca for dates, times and locations and to register.

Step 1: Visit any branch of the Greater Victoria Public Library and pick up a reading record.

Step 3: Each day, write down one thing you’ve read on your reading record – just use one line per day so you don’t run out of room before the end of the summer. Step 4: After you’ve read for seven days, visit the library to collect your weekly prize. Step 5: Repeat steps 2 to 4. Keep up the great work!
