Join us at the Campbell River Library today at 10:30 a.m. when the Campbell River Museum summer students will perform two free puppet shows.

“Ripple Rock” and “Skookum Sal” are both entertaining stories from Campbell River’s fascinating history.

This fun-filled event is open to Summer Reading Club members and other children approximately 5 years of age and older, as well as their families.  The library is at 1240 Shoppers Row beside the Tidemark Theatre.

It’s not too late to register for the Summer Reading Club which provides elementary school children with incentives to make reading an integral part of their holiday and encourages them to practice and improve their reading skills while school is out.

Children who sign up receive a fun registration package with a bookmark, stickers, trinkets, and a reading record book in which they are encouraged to keep track of the books they have read. Kids can also attend interesting programs such as this puppet show.  When they finish their reading record, children are eligible to receive a special Summer Reading Club medal and, at the end of the summer the Campbell River branch will celebrate with a wind-up party and medal ceremony.

For younger children who are not yet reading on their own, there is also the “Read to Me” Club where parents can track the books they read to their children to qualify them for prize draws and reading medals.

Find more information, visit www.virl.bc.ca or contact the Campbell River Library at (250) 287-3655. Kids use their own or their parent’s library card, which is available free-of-charge at all local library branches. Parents need to show valid ID and sign their children’s card.

They can also apply online at www.virl.bc.ca (click ‘Using the Library’ > ‘Membership’).

Summer Reading Club is sponsored by the BC Library Association and Vancouver Island Regional Library, with assistance from the Libraries and Literacy Branch, Ministry of Education.
