TD Summer Reading Club

TD Summer Reading Club 2016 (birth to 12 years)

This summer, kids are encouraged to escape their everyday, step outside their ordinary and seek the unknown and untamed through reading. Whether it’s outdoors, outrageous or out of bounds, the unexplored is calling, and with TD Summer Reading Club books, activities, and an unleashed imagination, kids can let go and find their wild this summer.

Families who register will receive a free program package, based on their child’s age, with everything children need to for the TD Summer Reading Club, including a free Durham Ride to Read Transit Pass (you must have a library card for the transit pass).

Families are encouraged to return once a week, whenever it is convenient, and talk to Library staff about their reading. What counts as reading? Children can read independently, read to someone else or have someone read to them. Fiction and non-fiction books, magazines, comics, newspapers and audio books are all great choices. Please talk to staff if your child needs help finding a book.

Each week when children return to the library, they will be entered in a prize draw and receive a special collectible sticker. Children who attend 6 weeks out of the total 9 weeks in the summer will be entered in the Grand Prize draw.
