Summer Reading Club

Summer Reading Club 2020

5...4...3...2...1...Blast off with reading this summer!

Summer Reading Club (SRC) is a free annual library program for children that emphasizes reading for fun, engaging weekly activities, children’s programs and book recommendations. You can join the Summer Reading Club to read books, collect stickers or badges and win prizes.  Summer Reading Club is officially ON!



This year, there are two options to join: 

  • Option 1: complete the program virtually!
    The online club and all its instructions can be found at Click "North Vancouver" then select which NVDPL location you usually visit. 
  • Option 2: do it yourself by completing the program with a physical Reading Record. 
    Pick up an Explore Our Universe Summer Reading Club package when you come to any NVDPL location to pick up your Library Takeout order. 



Both options work the same way: use your reading record to keep track of each day that you read for 15 minutes or longer—you can record titles, chapters, pages, or time—it’s up to you! You can read on your own, be read to, or listen to whatever you like in any format. 

When you’ve completed 50 days of reading, you will earn a prize and a Summer Reading Club medal. We'll provide you more details on how to collect your prize in August. 

Whether you’re reading lots of books or one big fat one, it takes everyone 50 days of reading to complete Summer Reading Club. There’s lots of time to finish! The goal is to make reading a regular part of your summer and to have fun.

We'll provide you more details on how to collect your prize in August. 



This summer we will be hosting special online presentations with authors and illustrators, including some astronauts! Sign up for our e-newsletter to receive updates on SRC events and activities, as well as more information on how to collect your prizes when you finish the club. 

Why participate? 

Summer Reading Club can help motivate kids to read (or be read to) regularly, which helps to maintain or improve their reading skills while school is out. It makes reading fun by inviting kids to read what they want and when they want. The expert staff at NVDPL can help kids find just what they like, whether it’s a print book, audiobook, e-book, or magazine. If you're looking for personalized Kids Picks, you can order them through Library Takeout
