Read winter away and win prizes

Library launches Adult Winter Reading Club

As the rain pours down and the clouds settle in for the long haul, what could be better than cozying up with a good book and a hot drink? Prizes, that’s what could be better, and thanks to Vancouver Island Regional Library’s first ever Adult Winter Reading Club.

“We’re really excited to use the always popular Kids Summer Reading Club as a model for this great winter blues buster for adults,” Melissa Legacy, VIRL’s director of library services and planning, said.

“I hope everyone will participate in this fun and innovative program that encourages our adult customers to get in on reading club fun.”

Participating in the club couldn’t be easier. Simply pick up a reading record at any VIRL branch and record what you read for the months of January and February. Bring in your reading record any time and get a draw ticket for each title recorded for a chance to win weekly book prizes, a $30 gift certificate at a local bookstore, or a Kobo eReader.

The Vancouver Island Regional Library Sooke branch is at 2065 Anna Marie Rd.
