Richmond Public Library has officially kicked off its Summer Reading Club and programs.

The public can now register for RPL's summer reading club, presented in partnership with the BC Library Association, to help children maintain and improve their reading skills.

This year's provincial theme is "world of curiosities."

New this year for the reading club are physical literacy opportunities in collaboration with the City of Richmond and the Richmond Olympic Oval.

“A community that reads together thrives together!” said Caty Liu, chair of the library board.

“I’m proud that Richmond Public Library offers summer reading programs and activities for kids, teens, and adults, sparking a love of reading and bringing people together through stories." said Liu.

Free reading booklets to track reading progress can be picked up at any library location.

There are also regular prize draws and free programs starting July 9 with a visit from Science World.

A teen-specific reading club for those ages 12 to 18 is also available where a reading bingo card, challenges and activities are hosted throughout the summer months. Teens can complete activities for a chance to win prizes including gift certificates and sports passes.

Meanwhile, the Richmond Read Summer Reading Club for adults features "High Society," a thriller by Canadian author and emergency physician Daniel Kalla.

There will be three book club discussions on different books by Kalla and a meet-and-greet at Brighouse library on Wednesday, July 3.
