Join us for the very popular Summer Reading Club. Registration begins Saturday, June 19 and is ongoing throughout the summer. The SRC is a great way to have some fun while maintaining and improving your reading skills during the summer months. All children who have finished kindergarten and up welcome to register for this free club. Free Programs held Tuesday evenings for school-aged readers. (registration required) Activity room available for preschoolers.
Join the club and be inspired to read all summer long. Each week we'll have a different theme for you to enjoy, along with a selection of titles hand-picked by our staff. Simply read the book, jot down your thoughts on the comment card and return. Join us for the Summerland Reads debate and Adult Summer Reading Club book discussion Saturday, August 25th beginning at 10:30 am.
Read the 6 books from Week #1 and cast your vote for the contender that everyone in Summerland should read. Reading lists available at the library information desk. Our champions have chosen their favourites and will debate the merits of these fabulous books. Debate begins at 10:30 am Saturday, August 25th with a discussion of the Adult Summer Reading Club books to follow. Come out for coffee and goodies and let us know how you liked your Summer Reads.

The Summerland branch began a seed library in the fall of 2015. Seeds may be 'borrowed' with a library card much as a book would be. We ask borrowers to sign the seeds out, take them home and grow them, enjoy the harvest and save some seeds from every batch grown. Then, return the dried seeds to the library.
The seed library has been extremely popular and we look forward to everyone returning seeds - it's not too late! Pre-labelled envelopes are available at the library to return seeds in - please ask at the desk.
This volunteer group has been active at the Summerland Library since 1999. Volunteers bring library materials to those that are homebound and cannot get into the library. If you are interested in joining this group of dedicated volunteers please ask at the circulation desk.
A small but dedicated group of people who volunteer to help out with library events and programs as well as maintain the used book cart. Proceeds from the sale of donated books are used to help fund children's and adult programs as well as to support the "Books for Babies" program and the popular Summer Reading Club for kids and adults.
