Reading recognition ceremony Aug. 29

Mission children have been taking part in the Summer Reading Club

Kids in Mission have been reading all summer, and Mission Library is holding a  ceremony to recognize those who have completed their reading records.

The event will be held at the library Aug. 29 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. More than 800 kids signed up in Mission, plus 200 adults for the Adult Summer Reading Club.

The Fraser Valley Regional Library has sponsored Summer Reading Clubs for more than four decades. This year’s Up, Up and Away theme captured the imagination of young and old and produced a near-record number of readers who joined in the fun, reading books from the hilarious to the serious and collecting stickers, playing the Reading Club Board Game, and searching for the club mascot, a tricky pug named Pugley who moved around the library, hiding in a different spot every week.

Kids who have completed seven weeks of reading should bring their reading records to the library for stickers and last minute instructions about the ceremony. Those who have completed this goal but cannot make it to the ceremony can drop by the library any time after that date to pick up their medals.

For more information, call the library at 604-826-6610. The library is lcoated at 33247 Second Ave.
