 During the summer, elementary school aged children can enjoy book-based activities and lots of good reading by joining the Okanagan Regional Library's Summer Reading Club. The goals of the program are to:

  • Promote regular reading during the summer to help maintain or increase reading skills
  • Develop a lifelong love of reading in children 
  • Have fun

Close to 4,700 children from Golden to Osoyoos join the ORL’s Summer Reading Club every year.

The Summer Reading Club is sponsored by the British Columbia Library Association, with the assistance of Libraries and Literacy, Ministry of Education. In many of our communities, the local Friends of the Library group enhances the program by sponsoring guest speakers and entertainers, and by providing funds to purchase additional program materials and prizes.
