Education Matters

Read Through the Summer with Red Deer Public Library!

May 1st, 2016

By Candice Putnam

Coming June 1 for ages 3-11!

Changes are coming to Red Deer Public Library’s Summer Reading Club ¾ we are moving our club online this year! Track your reading, earn badges for reading and going to programs, write book reviews, set reading goals, create booklists, take quizzes, and get a jump on your summer reading! This free program starts on June 1, and we can’t wait for you to get started!

Even though our SRC has moved online this year, we will still have lots of weekly Summer Reading Club activities at all three branches for you to take part in. This year’s theme is WILD, and is all about encouraging children to “escape their everyday, step outside their ordinary and seek the unknown and untamed through reading.” We hope to see you there!

In the meantime, here are some summer book releases you can look forward to this year -- pop into RDPL to pick one up!

Don’t forget: we also have Summer Reading Clubs for Teens and Adults too! Free fun for the whole family! Visit for more info.
