Reading starts off being fun, and it stays that way for a lifetime.

Reading club leaders (L-R) Samantha Rigby

A great way for kids to add to their reading skills is once again coming up with summer reading clubs at the Castlegar Public Library and the Blueberry Community School.

Parents/guardians, be aware that this year’s theme of “Up, Up, and Away” could apply to more than kids’ imaginations when they join the club, judging by past levels of interest, it could be what happens to the hopes of families who don’t sign up right away.

Registration begins on Wednesday, June 19 at the Castlegar Public Library.

The club for pre-schoolers will run from Thursday, July 4 to August 15.

For kindergarten and grad 1 kids the club will run from Wednesday, July 3 to August 14.

For grades 2 to 4 the club will go from Tuesday, July 2 to August 13, and for grades 5 and up – Friday, July 5 to August 13.

Blueberry Creek Community School RegistrationTuesday, June 18th from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Completed grade 3 to grade 7: Thursdays from 10am- 2:30pm (Bring a lunch)

 

Sessions run mornings or afternoons for some levels, check registration forms for exact times.

Each session will be filled with fun activities including games, crafts, and, of course, time spent exploring the captivating world of literature.

Kids will receive a reading record they can use to keep track of the time spent reading. Kids can be entered in weekly draws for prizes.
