2016 TD Summer Reading Club
June 27, 2016

It’s time again for the TD Summer Reading Club! 

Summer is here and the SD&G County Library is getting ready to launch their 2016 TD Summer Reading Club, Canada’s biggest, bilingual summer reading program for kids of all ages, all interests, and all abilities.

This Saturday, July 2nd, kids in the SDG area are invited to join Library staff as they celebrate the start of the 2016 reading program.  The launch party is being held at the Long Sault Fire Hall from 10am until 1pm.  This year’s theme for the reading program is “WILD”, and it all kicks off on Saturday with stories, games, snacks, and a visit from Little Ray’s Reptiles. 

Children can register for TD Summer Reading Club programs while at the launch party or at their local branch.  Programs take place at each branch every week from July 4 until August 26.  In addition to the programs, kids receive a free reading kit to track their reading activities throughout the summer.  There are also great resources and activities available online at www.tdsummerreadingclub.ca.

“Kids can participate anytime, anywhere – at their local library branch as well as at home, online, on the road, or wherever their summer takes them,” said Karen Franklin, Director of Library Services.  “The TD Summer Reading Club celebrates Canadian authors, illustrators, and stories.  It’s designed to inspire kids to explore the fun of reading their way – the key to building a lifelong love of reading”.

Studies show that kids who keep reading throughout the summer do better when they return to school in the fall. The TD Summer Reading Club is an ideal way to keep kids engaged. The free program is co-created and delivered by over 2,000 public libraries across Canada.
