Thank you Chetwynd and Richmond for sending us your extra medals. I think we have enough now. Really appreciate your help. Our customers were thrilled to get them.
It’s a great problem to have – we ran out of SRC medals. If anyone has any left please send them our way
If you don’t have a use for the leftover small plastic bags that the medals come in, please feel free to send to me, and I will ensure they get reused/recycled.
Please send att: Cynthia to

Kelsey (age 7) is a regular customer here at Richmond Public Library. She is visually impaired, and her mom has added construction paper over the title and sticker boxes to give it a raised texture, and Kelsey is using her braille machine to add the braille to the title boxes.
It’s a little bit tricky to see in the photo, but it was such a cool idea I wanted to share it with everyone.
If anyone has any extra medals, we would be happy to receive them! We have had a banner year but are looking a little lean in the medal bin.
They can be sent via Interlink to Port Moody c/o Corene Brown.
If anyone is needed extra reading metals, we have 40 that we can send!

Hello all : )
I had originally shared this story with Cynthia and was asked to post it here for others to enjoy.
A sweet story from the Castlegar Summer Reading Club:
A girl came upstairs from the Grade 2 to 4 Summer Reading Program with her mom. She already had a book in her hand, but also checked out two picture books. Her mom told me that the daughter takes out one book downstairs at reading club for herself but then wants to come up and pick out a few to take home and read to her brother. I found this story really heartwarming, and a reminder of the great power of Summer Reading Club.
Hope everyone enjoys & is having a great SRC so far!
So fun to visit North Vancouver District Library and get a chance to see their exhibit: A Look Back: 29 Years of the BC Summer Reading Club.
When Libraries Branch, Ministry of Education, moved out of their Robson Street office earlier this year, all the framed BC SRC posters needed a home. NVDPL offered not only a roof, but also an exhibit on the 2nd Floor of Lynn Valley Library.What a wonderful opportunity to see all the BC SRC posters in one place! On display till July 30.
Here are a few pics from the opening reception:

Jacqueline van Dyk (NVDPL’s Director of Library Services) welcomed guests and visitors to the opening reception.
Jacqueline with a reading record one of her own children had filled out: “Something we treasure and hang onto forever.”

What a pleasure to meet 2008 artist, Elisa Gutiérrez (Read all Over the Map)
And if you can’t make it to North Van, thanks to our Web Guy, Neil Firkins (pictured above), you can always see the posters on the BC SRC digital archives.
