Children and Teen Programming

Children’s programs are opportunities for your child to interact and develop communication and literacy skills in a fun learning environment.

TD Summer Reading Club

TD Summer Reading Club is an inclusive program that strives to engage all children in the joy of reading during the summer months while championing Canadian writers and illustrators. Children who register for the TD Summer Reading Club at their local library receive free program materials and are encouraged to earn twelve collectible stickers by reading books over the summer. They are also invited to participate in programs organized at their local library and share their love of reading with children across the country through the TD Summer Reading Club website.

Ask a staff member at one of our branches for more information.
