Courtesy of the Cariboo Regional District:
The Cariboo Regional District Libraries in 100 Mile House, Quesnel, and Williams Lake invite children of all ages to join this year’s BC Summer Reading Club. This year’s theme is Motion Commotion. The program runs from July 3 to August 17.
In Williams Lake, registration began Tuesday, June 12. In 100 Mile and Quesnel, registration opens on June 19. Registration is free.
Kids can sign up to attend one free session per week. Each week they will be participating in a variety of fun activities, crafts, and story-times based on the theme Motion Commotion. The Summer Reading Club will conclude with a celebration party for all participants.
Kids receive a reading record to help keep track of their summer reading fun. And, if they complete the program, they will be awarded a medal at the end of the summer!
Volunteers are needed for the program to help with crafts, clean up and provide support for the Summer Reading Club coordinator. Volunteers need to be over 12 years old and will have to complete a criminal record check. This is a neat volunteer experience for teenagers to help build their resume.

Hi, I’m Freya Jonasson, back again at the Quesnel Library Branch this summer as the Summer Reading Club Coordinator. I am currently finishing my undergraduate studies and plan to enter the education program to be an elementary school teacher. I can’t wait to see all the kids returning for another fun-filled summer.
Carmen Kaufman – Williams Lake Library Branch
Hello, Williams Lake! My name is Carmen and this year I am your Summer Reading Club Coordinator. I am a university student with aspirations to become a youth occupational therapist. I cherish time spent working with children (and by working, I really mean playing!), so I can hardly wait for this summer of tall tales, fun crafts and exciting games.
About the Summer Reading Club
The BC Summer Reading Club motivates children to read (or be read to) regularly, which helps maintain or improve reading skills while school is out. It makes reading fun by inviting kids to read what they want and when they want. The Cariboo Regional District Library staff can help kids find just what they like, whether it’s a print book, audiobook, e-book, or magazine.
The BC Summer Reading Club reaches more than 85,000 BC children every year. The program is sponsored by the British Columbia Library Association, with financial support from the Libraries Branch, Ministry of Education, and the RBC Foundation.
