2014 TD Summer Reading Club

Every year, teachers warn parents and students about “the summer slide”, which refers to the fact that when kids go back to school in the fall, they have lost about two months of reading skunktabletand educational proficiency. One of the great ways to prevent the summer slide is to encourage reading during vacation which brings us to the TD Summer Reading Club!

This year, the theme is Eureka! It’s all about discovery, hands-on fun and creativity. We have many activities taking place at the library, along with the ever-popular reading logs! Kids can keep track of what they read (and they can read whatever they want). At the end of the summer, when they hand in their logs (the deadline is August 13), a few of the top readers will walk away with some cool prizes.

But that’s not all! You can…advertisement_computer
