Strange but true winners!

This year’s Summer Reading Club program was one of the most successful in recent years with 139 kids enrolled in it, the library’s Lucie Bergeron said Wednesday.

But, like all good things, it came to an end for this year on Wednesday. Here are a few photos from the year-end party:

The bank has, for many years, provided medals to all of the kids who participate in library’s program for young readers. Lucie Bergeron said there were 139 children enrolled in the club this summer. The Royal Bank of Canada Foundation provided $35,000 to the BC Library Association to suppoort Summer Reading Clubs across the province. David F. Rooney photo
