Summer is a great time for you and your kids to explore your local library and participate in exciting Summer Wonder programs.

Each library hosts a variety of programs and activities between June 28 and August 31 that are fun and free for your family to enjoy. Kids can find a program that interests them using our TPL Kids webpageSummer Wonder is an excellent way for kids to discover new interests, build their skills, and meet new friends. Encourage your kids to come out and add their questions about the world to a wonder wall, or participate in a creative challenge each week at the branch!

To keep kids reading all summer long, visit a library branch near you and register them for the TD Summer Reading Club! When kids register, they will receive a kit that includes a notebook and a web access code. Once your kids have registered, here are the next steps:



Step 1: Pick a book to read

Your kids can read any book that interests them, whether it is fiction or nonfiction. If your kids need some recommendations, be sure to ask staff at your local library branch! You can also take a look at our Recommended Books page. Kids can also read an ebook using Overdrive for Kids

Step 2: Visit a library and tell us about the book

Once your kids have finished reading their chosen book, come in and tell us about it! Be sure to have them write down the title and author of the book in their notebook. Once they have finished their book report, we will give them a sticker! Book reporting times can differ by branch, so be sure to contact your local branch and ask them when you can come in! 

Step 3: Repeat steps 1 & 2 until the notebook is full

We have 12 stickers that kids can collect by completing book reports. Once the notebook is full, they can still keep reading for fun! 

Kids can also explore the TD Summer Reading Club website using their unique web access code. They can read jokes written by other kids, share their thoughts with comments, print fun colouring pages, and track the books they have read! If you are away for the summer, you can also use this website to report on the books your kids read.
