TD Summer Reading Club Kicks off with StoryMobs!

May 30, 2014 |

Join us for the launch of the TD Summer Reading Club on June 28. StoryMobs, a literary phenomenon where great children’s books meet flash mobs, will run 13 story mobs of the same book, on the same day, in six provinces across the country; four of them at Toronto Public Library branches. We’ll reveal the locations on June 20.

Through the use of costumes and props, music, simple choreography and reading out loud, children and their families can engage with books in a new and exciting way. The chosen book for this StoryMob is The Busy Beaver by Canadian author and illustrator Nicholas Oldland. Book-lovers, flash mob-enthusiasts and fun folks of all ages are encouraged to attend this free event. Toronto participants can find the script and sign up for reader parts for all 4 locations at storymobs.ca.
