Surrey Libraries to host Winter Reading Club

Similar program to run for adults at Guildford, Newton and Semiahmoo libraries.

Families that read together have a chance to win together this winter, with Surrey Libraries’ Winter Reading Club.

Those interested may pick up a reading log at any Surrey Libraries branch, and record their reading on the “read-ometer”, marking one degree for each day of reading.

Return the logbook to the library and be entered into a draw for prizes including a Kobo e-Reader.

The program is supported by the Telus Vancouver Community Board, and runs until Dec. 31. For more information, visit any Surrey Libraries branch, or go online to www.surreylibraries.ca

A similar program is also running for those aged 18 and older. Those interested may pick up a reading record from the Guildford, Newton or Semiahmoo libraries. Keep track of  daily reading, then stop by the information desk each week to chat about it and be entered into weekly prize draws.

The program runs through Jan. 12.
