Library offers book worm fun
SOMBA K'E/YELLOWKNIFE - Usually, people don't get medals for reading, but that's about to change.
The Summer Reading Club, run by the Yellowknife Public Library, is taking off this summer, giving children the opportunity to win rewards for reading.
Children who read 49 days and track their progress are to get a medal as motivation.
The reading adventure is for children from age three to 12.
