National TD Summer Reading Club Survey

The National TD Summer Reading Club Committee, composed of Library and Archives Canada and the TD Bank Group, have created a parent/caregiver survey for the 2014 TD Summer Reading Club. The responses to this survey will go directly to the National TD Summer Reading Club Committee to help them develop next year’s free program materials and resources. This survey is available online and can be accessed via this link: http://www.tdsummerreadingclub.ca/parents/survey

Pickering Public Library will send out a survey developed by the Library during Week 9 for feedback on how we run the TD Summer Reading Club and our summer programs.
