Summer Reading Club



Welcome to the Summer Reading Club! 

(for ALL ages) 

1 July - 13 August

The good news? We have an awesome summer reading club this year! 

The better news? We're back in-person with all kinds of fun programs to enjoy! 

Register online for the Summer Reading Program (registration opens 1st June) and keep track of your reading to be entered for weekly prizes!

The more you read, the more chance you have to win!

How the Summer Reading Club Works:

  • Register online for the Summer Reading Program (registration opens 1st June). Can't register online? No problem give us a call at 780-962-4423 ext.0 or stop by the library in-person and our staff will be happy to register you.
  • Download your reading challenge logs (All Ages), or try the bingo sheets for bonus entries (13+ years, including adults). You can also pick up your Summer Reading Club registration pack in-person at the Spruce Grove Public Library.
  • Keep track of your reading progress, to complete your log sheet there is a required amount of reading!
  • Send us a photo of your completed reading challenge log/bingo sheet to asgprogramming@yrl.ab.ca to be entered in the weekly prize draws throughout the summer. You can also drop it off at the library front desk (don't forget your name, age and contact info).
  • Each completed sheet is an entry for that week's prize draw throughout the summer! The more log sheets you complete, the more chances you have to win!
  • Prizes will be randomly drawn for three age groups each week (0-6 years, 7-12 years and 13+ years). Maximum one prize per individual.
