The Children’s Department is proud that this summer, we will once again be taking part in the TD Summer Reading Club. This great program helps encourage children to read during the summer months, which can help combat the “summer slide”, where the average student will lose up to one month of instruction.
By joining the Summer Reading Club (which has the theme “Travel the World”), you can participate in different library activities, but most importantly, you also get a reading log, where you can write the titles of the books you read this summer (and if someone reads to you, that counts, too). Just put the title and the author, as well as a rating on 5; we want to know what you think of the books you are reading! If you return the log by August 14, you will be in the running to win some fun prizes at our Closing Party, which takes place August 18 at 3 pm. If you complete your reading log before the end of the summer, just come back and get more logs. There’s no limit to how many you can fill!
The fun kicks off on June 30 at 1 pm with out Summer Reading Club Opening Party, which is when registration begins! We’ll have some games and crafts related to our fun Travel theme. No need to register for this activity; just drop by.
We hope to see you there!
