Kids can now join the 2012 Summer Reading Club free at the Rossland Public Library.

The Rossland Library is encouraging kids to investigate great reading this summer.

Kids can now join the 2012 Summer Reading Club free at the Rossland Public Library.

This year, the club’s theme is “Strange… But True?”

Interested kids could sign up at the library starting yesterday, with the fun and games starting July 3.

Kids who complete their Reading Record will be eligible to receive a special Summer Reading Club medal!

The library says that regular reading during the summer helps kids to maintain or even improve their reading and literacy skills and studies show that voluntary reading is the number one factor in establishing good reading habits.

Summer Reading Club makes reading fun and the expert staff at [your library name] can help kids find just the right book or magazine from among a wide variety of library materials.

Summer Reading Club reaches over 80,000 children across British Columbia every summer and is sponsored by the British Columbia Library Association with funding assistance from Libraries and Literacy, Ministry of Education.
