The TD Summer Reading Club is Canada's biggest, bilingual summer reading program for kids of all ages, all interests and all abilities. Co-created and delivered by over 2,000 libraries across Canada, this free national program is developed by the Toronto Public Library in partnership with Library and Archives Canada. Sponsorship is provided by TD Bank Group.
The Club helps connect families with books and helps build confidence in reading through the delivery of free incentives and fun, accessible library activities. All summer long across Canada, libraries aim to inspire a sense of adventure and wonder, nurture children's imaginations and celebrate their accomplishments.
In fact, studies show that kids who keep reading throughout the summer do better when they return to school in the fall. The Club celebrates Canadian authors, illustrators and stories, and inspires kids to explore the fun of reading their way. This is the key to building a lifelong love of reading.
Due to the impact of COVID-19, the 2020 TD Summer Reading Club’s activities will be online only. As of June 15, 2020, kids across the country are encouraged to register online for the TD Summer Reading Club. Through the website, kids will be able to create an online notebook, read ebooks, participate in weekly trivia, read an original web comic strip, print colouring sheets, and so much more!
