10 Years of Summer Reading Club

It’s about that time of the year.  The time when children’s librarians kick it into high gear as we prepare for an influx of kids visiting the library and signing up for Summer Reading Club (SRC). Heck, some of you may already be in full swing.  In Vancouver, our schools don’t get out until June 24th this year, and our SRC kicks off on June 17th.

In British Columbia we have a provincial theme each year that sets the stage for our booklists, programs, and SRC materials.  I thought it would be fun to take a trip down memory lane and look at the themes from the past 10 years.  I’ve only been a children’s librarian for three years, so I missed out on many of these.  Each year a B.C. artist is hired to design all the materials.  You can also visit the websites for each year to find supplementary materials if a particular theme floats your boat.  Which one is your favourite?
