Check out our Summer Reading Club book picks! All picks were inspired by this year's theme "Explore Our Universe" and include eBooks and print books you can borrow from the library! Read more about our services during the pandemicwhich includes holds pick-up.


How will the Summer Reading Club be different from previous years? This year, you won't need to pick up or hand in anything to the library to get your medal. You can track your reading online after you sign up, or print out your own reading record at home. Every child who reads this summer can get a medal.

How and when can I get my medal? We aren't sure yet! We will post an update on this page in late August.

What if my child isn't reading yet? Reading and singing to your child will also win them a medal!

What if I want to contact a librarian? Call us at 604-436-5400 or email us at We can answer your questions during our opening hours.
