Join the TD Summer Reading Club!
Sunday, 29 April 2007
Every summer, close to 400,000 Canadian elementary school children take part in the TD Summer Reading Club. The reasons behind this program’s popularity are that it is both fun and rewarding.
Through entertaining activities and rewards, the Club motivates kids to read for pleasure during summer vacation and thus improve their reading skills.
Parents can register their children at participating public libraries, where they will receive a free activity booklet and poster promoting this year’s theme, Lost Worlds.
In addition to facilitating a variety of activities, the staff at the library will be able to suggest a number of exciting books to kids based on their personal tastes. It is up to each child to decide the number of books he or she will read during the summer.
Program participants receive a sticker for every book they read. There are nine stickers in all to collect. Kids who follow their progress and see their poster evolve with the addition of stickers stay highly motivated. Finally, kids who achieve their reading goals will receive a certificate from the library’s staff attesting to their success.
Join the numerous families that will be taking part this summer in the program offered thanks to the collaboration between Library and Archives Canada, the TD Bank Financial Group and the Toronto Public Library.
In Edmonton, the Lost Worlds Summer Reading Club will take place in the following Edmonton Public Library branches: Castle Downs, Jasper Place, Lessard, Riverbend, Spruce Wood, and Stanley A. Milner (Downtown).
