Summer Reading Club

The Summer Reading Club is a free program offered by public libraries across the province. Each summer, approximately 85,000 children participate by signing up for reading records and/or joining in the weekly programs that promote literacy and a love of reading. Studies show that summer reading clubs motivate kids to read regularly, so they help to maintain or improve reading skills while school is out. They make reading fun, too. Kids may read whatever they like, wherever they wish.

All school-aged children are welcome to join. We encourage every child of every reading ability to open a book that is perfect for them!

Reading Buddies

Reading Buddies is a program at the Squamish Public Library where teens and children pair up for one-on-one reading in a safe, fun, and friendly environment. The goals of this program are to provide children with extra reading practice and to provide teens with leadership skills and an opportunity to volunteer in the community.

Reading Buddies is not designed to teach children how to read.

Children must be in grades 2, 3, or 4. To register your child, please contact Kate at 604-892-3110, ext. 5301 or kinman@squamish.ca.
