Children can boost their reading skills and stay sharp for school with awesome programs and activities! Registration will open as part of Get Your Summer Read On Day on Wednesday, June 15th!

Registration includes a notebook with reading challenges, stickers, and more. You and your child can pick these up at any branch starting Wednesday, June 15th, or at any TD Summer Reading Club program in July and August.

We're excited to offer in-person TD Summer Reading Club programs this year! Programs are weekly and will run from Tuesday, July 5th to Thursday, August 25th.

Venture into magical realms where fantastic creatures roam and anything can (and will) happen. Discover the power of stories and storytelling to entertain and illuminate important lessons. Be enchanted by fairy and folk tales, old and new and from far and wide, as you journey through suspenseful twists and turns. Whatever the stories may be, they are bound to inspire you to imagine and even tell your own story.

 

Co-created and delivered by over 2,200 public libraries across Canada, this national bilingual program is developed by Toronto Public Library in partnership with Library and Archives Canada. Sponsorship is generously provided by TD Bank Group.
