Don’t miss the reading train! FVRL invites all kindergartners to come explore their local library by joining the All Aboard for Kindergarten program. This innovative literacy program, now in its fifth year, is designed to introduce kindergarten students to their local library. All Aboard for Kindergarten is delivered through a partnership between FVRL and nine Fraser Valley school districts. Beginning at the end of September, participating schools will distribute packages to kindergartners. Each child’s package will include a special Literacy Train foldout poster with a checklist of 100 Books to Read in Kindergarten, literacy information for families and an invitation for the child to get an FVRL card.Kindergartners who visit any of FVRL’s 24 locations with their invitation will receive a new library card and a special lanyard for their card. As they visit their library throughout the year, they are encouraged to borrow books and enter prize draws.
