TD Summer Reading Club 2015

The TD Summer Reading Club is back for another great year at Pickering Public Library! This free, inclusive, bilingual program is hosted at libraries across Canada, creating an opportunity for children and families to make reading a fun part of their summer. The TD Summer Reading Club helps connect families with books, build confidence in reading and have fun through exciting, accessible library activities. This year’s TD Summer Reading Club theme is Play! and encourages kids to discover that the joyful, carefree feelings associated with play can just as easily be found within a book.

Preschool (birth to 4 years)

Families who register will receive a free preschool program package, which includes fun early literacy activities to do together. Families are encouraged to return once a week, whenever it is convenient, and talk to Library staff about what they have been reading and doing. Each week when they return, they will be entered into a prize draw and receive a special collectible sticker. Those who attend six of the total nine weeks throughout the summer will be entered in to Grand Prize draw. Families are encouraged to attend Play! themed programs all summer long.
