Adult Summer Reading Club starts July 2 in Cowichan and Chemainus

Kids aren’t the only ones having fun this summer at the library. Vancouver Island Regional Library is starting a summer reading club for adults.

The new Adult Summer Reading Club program is designed to remind adults of the joy of leisure reading and to encourage them to model this behaviour for children in the community, especially those participating in our kid’s summer reading club.

Registration for this free summer reading program starts mid-June at the Cowichan and Chemainus libraries. The program officially kicks off July 2 and runs until Aug. 20. Visit your library branch to register and pick up your reading record. Keep track of your reading to enter up to seven weekly draws! For more information go to www.virl.bc.ca
