How does the SRC work?

The Summer Reading Club is designed to be flexible to fit with your summer schedule.

  • Write your books down in your reading log.
  • Bring your Reading Log to any branch of the Wellington County Library between June 24 and August 19.
  • Receive one Book Buck for every five (5) picture books or two (2) chapter books read or listened to.
  • Redeem Book Bucks for prizes. Every Book Buck is also a ballot for our Grand Prize Draw. This year winners can adopt an animal of their choice from the Canadian Wildlife Federation. Each adoption kit includes a plush toy, certificate of adoption, and information booklet about the animal.

There's more!
