Summer Reading Club
SRC is starting up again on July 2nd! Stay tuned for updates on which communities will be hosting, times, and dates.
Every year in July and August HDPL offers an array of Summer Reading Club activities throughout the Hazeltons for kids aged 3 and up. Participants can register at any point throughout the summer at any SRC program they attend, including those outside the library. On registration, kids receive a kit to help them track their reading this summer. See our Events Calendar for the full schedule of SRC activities.
As always, this program is free and designed for fun! Participants read what they choose, when they choose, and can attend as many events as they like or none at all. At club meetings, we play games, do crafts, read great books, and generally just have a good time. Children are encouraged to set their own summer reading goal, whatever that may be, and if they meet their goal they will be awarded a shiny new SRC medal at summer’s end.
SRC is sponsored by the British Columbia Library Association, the Libraries Branch of the Ministry of Education, and CUPE. HDPL also gratefully acknowledges the support of the Northwest Library Federation, the Bulkley Valley Child Development Centre, and Northern Health, which make possible our additional SRC activities including special guest performances and community SRC events.
