Summer vacation is fast approaching for school-aged children in the South Okanagan Similkameen, and the Okanagan Regional Library (ORL) is ready to ensure kids don’t lose their literacy skills during the break with the Summer Reading Club (SRC). ORL branches will be holding a multitude of special activities, events, and contests to encourage young people to read over summer break.
SRC is made possible thanks to sponsorship from the BC Library Association and the Ministry of Education, and with help from local Friends of the Library groups. This year’s Summer Reading Club theme is “Savour Each Word”. Students can visit their local branch to receive a reading record and register for weekly activities.
In the South Okanagan Similkameen region, registration for SRC is required and begins in branches as follows:
– Summerland – June 18
– Naramata – June 14
– Kaleden – June 28
– Okanagan Falls – June 17
– Oliver – June 14
– Osoyoos – June 21
– Keremeos – June 18
Detailed information about each branch’s events can be found at www.orl.bc.ca/branches or in the branch.
