The 2014 Kids Summer Reading Club (SRC) - themed "Funny Business" - is in full swing now!

The Kids SRC is designed to get children reading, with the use of a fun theme, posters, stickers, a reading record, bookmarks, completion medals, and novelty items. In addition each year they have a new designed website offering 7 quizzes (1 for each week of the program) word puzzles, and fun games.

This year's artist is Jeremy Tankard. Jeremy attended the Alberta College of Art & Design where he studied drawing and print-making. His early career focused on editorial illustrations for publications such as Time magazine, Fortune, The New York Times, Guitar Player, Royal Bank, and The Globe & Mail. However, when his daughter Hermione became a toddler, Jeremy found himself reading stacks of picture books and was reminded of the main reason he had wanted to attend art school in the first place - to create picture books!

Thank you!

A BIG thanks to BC Library Association for the opportunity, yet again. It's always a great experience working with you and so rewarding to be a part of helping our kids improve their reading skills.

We really enjoy designing sites for kids. It demands color, energy and a certain playfulness. That's what we feel we've accomplished with the BC Library's latest Kids educational project - Express Yourself: The BC Kids Writing Contest.

The BC Kids Writing Contest 2011

JenTekk was contacted June 1st, 2011 with an opportunity to design a small site for the BC Library Association in conjunction with the Ministry of Education, providing Kids with an opportunity to showcase their writing skills. The only catch was, they needed it done yesterday.

Unable to resist a challenge, working with the BC Library Association again and finally for the love of our kids - I took it on. Fortunately all the preliminary work was ready: basic content, site objectives, and functionality requirements. I'm happy to say the site was completed in under 3 weeks and right on time for the official launch & start of the competition.

Thank you!

Thanks once again to BC Library Association et al for this unique and exciting opportunity! May the "Express Yourself" writing contest be a huge success!
