What is Eureka?

Eureka is for kids 12 years old and younger.  You can register at any Regina Public Library branch to receive a reading kit and instructions from your librarian.  Each kit includes a reading log, activity booklet, notebook and stickers.  Children are encouraged to read for 15 minutes a day.  When you have completed your yellow reading log, bring it in to your local branch to enter for some great prizes at the end of the summer.  Then you can start keeping reading logs for more chances to win.  The theme of this year’s Summer Reading Club is encouraging children to invent, create, and innovate using books and stories as their inspiration.  Prizes include an iPad Mini and bookstore gift certificates of $100, $75, and $50, an iPod shuffle and iTunes card, $50 Cineplex Odeon Gift Certificates, Space Scooter X580, Rainbow Loom Create-It Kit, Schleich Safari Kit and more.  The more you read the more chances you receive to win!  The Grand Prize Draw will be on September 12, 2014.
