2014 TD Summer Reading Club - Teens

Teen Summer Reading Club 2014

Why not turn your summer reading into prizes? Register through our website or at any Pickering Public Library branch. For each book you read, write a short review and you will receive a ballot for the Auction in September. There will also be weekly prize draws for books. The more you read, the more you win! And everyone who registers receives a fee forgiveness voucher that will clear your overdue fees. Please note, if registering online, teens will have to come to the library in person to pickup their Amnesty Vouchers and bus passes (if eligible).
