Reading Club winds up at Campbell River library

Everyone who has registered for one of these programs and completed their reading log has earned a reading medal

Those lazy days of summer reading are almost over, and it’s time for Summer Reading Club and Read to Me club members to celebrate their achievements.

Everyone who has registered for one of these programs and completed their reading log has earned a reading medal.

This week is your last chance to show your completed log at the Campbell River Library so they can put your name on the list of medal winners.

The medals will be presented at the Summer Reading Club Wind-Up party on Tuesday Aug. 28 from 2:30-4 p.m.

Local members of the Vancouver Island Regional Library Board, Ron Kerr and Brenda Leigh, will be on hand to congratulate the winners.

Vicky Williams will represent the Royal Bank, donors of the beautiful SRC medals.

The party will also feature announcements of the grand prizes, refreshments, and a fun-filled performance “The Bigg Show” with Trent Arterberry.  His show has been described as “comical storytelling, masterful mime, compelling music and hilarious puppetry”.

For more information about Summer Reading Club medals and the wind-up celebration, visit the library at 1240 Shoppers Row or phone 287-3655.  For more about Trent Arterberry visit
