The Pender Harbour Reading Centre invites kids of all ages to join the 2019 BC Summer Reading Club. This year’s theme is Imagine the Possibilities. Registration is free and the Reading Club will take place every Tuesday until Aug. 6. Drop in with your kids from 9 to 11 a.m. for stories and games, books and rewards. There will be reading logs, bookmarks and stickers. The BC Summer Reading Club motivates kids to read (or be read to) regularly, which helps to maintain or improve their reading skills while school is out. It makes reading fun by inviting kids to read what they want when they want. The expert staff at the Pender Harbour Reading Centre can help kids find just what they like, whether in print, audio, e-book or magazine. The Reading Centre is grateful for the support of the Sechelt Public Library, and the British Columbia Library Association with program financial support from Libraries Branch, Ministry of Education and CUPE BC.

The Wildfire at Your Doorstep presentation at the Legion on June 19 was well attended – a timely and immense help and comfort when days later the wildfire was a reality.
Thank you is just not enough to say to the valiant, heroic firefighters who kept us safe. We are so very grateful.
