Reading club launched at library

Summer reading club begins at Sicamous Okanagan Regional Library.

It’s up, up and away at the Sicamous Branch of the Okanagan Regional Library for Summer Reading Club.

A magician is just some of those who will be visiting the Sicamous library this summer.

Registration has already begun, but it is not too late. Children can register at any point during the summer, but the sooner they get involved, the more fun contests and events they are able to take part in.

All children ages five to 12 are welcome. To register, please drop in to the branch at 446 Main St., or call 250-836-4845 for more information. There are free programs on Wednesdays at 10 a.m. on July 10, 24 and 31.

On July 17 at 2:30 p.m. there will be a  Family Magic Show starring Magician Leif David.

The goal of the program is to ensure that children continue to read through the summer months.


Each child who registers will get a booklet to keep track of the books they read and a bookmark. Once they have recorded a book, they get a sticker.
