About TD Summer Reading Club
Join the club and help us celebrate Canada’s biggest reading program for kids of all ages, all interests and all abilities. TD Summer Reading Club is designed to inspire kids to discover the fun of reading wherever their summer may take them. Participants explore recommended reads, join in activities, collect reading incentives, and build a lifelong love of reading.
We have an extensive lineup of programs and activities designed to excite and engage our young readers and participants. Read on for full details on all we have to offer and get your summer read on at BTPL!
Avoid disappointment and register early for those programs that require it. Please register in-person or by telephone.
Summer Reading Incentive
A Bead per Read!
Track your reading and create your own unique summer reading necklace by earning a bead for every read.
Necklace chains will be handed out on your first visit back to us after signing up for the club and you will earn colourful beads to build your necklace by reading throughout the summer. Participants will receive a bead for every book read and tracked in their passport.
**Earn bonus beads by participating in the many programs and activities we have planned to complement your Summer Reading Experience!
