Summer Reading Club

Hello to all our summer astronauts! We hope you’re ready to Explore the Universe with us!  In light of social distancing, SRC will look a little different this year. Instead of in-library programs, we are offering FREE weekly take home kits with different activities and crafts each week. Things like building bottle rockets, and scavenger hunts around Invermere (or your backyard!), creating your astronaut badge and more! Program for kids finished Kindergarten to Grade 7 (5-12).

Mission kits will be available each Thursday at 10:00 for pick up from July 9-August 20. To sign up for the mission kits, please fill out the registration form below. You can register for the 7 weeks of activities all at once (we strongly encourage this), or if you’d like to just participate for a week or two you can! Kits will be placed outside the front library door for contactless pick up. Kits not picked up Thursday will be available on Friday from 10-5.

Please Note: You MUST register by the Thursday before the kit pick up date, for instance to pick up the July 9th kit, you must register by July 2nd.

READING LOGS: Available from July 2nd on. Come into the library to pick up your log, or call us if you’d prefer curbside pickup. If you don’t get your log before July 9, it will be in your first Mission kit. 

Colour in a dot for every 15 minutes of reading (it counts if you are read to!) and once the log is full, bring it to the library in exchange for a Lego minifigure and a reading medal (while supplies last). You must fill out a paper log to win a Lego minifigure, but you can also track your reading online at bcsrc.ca and collect badges there!
