Summer Reading Program

July 2 to August 16, 2024

The TD Summer Reading program is a fun, interactive, seven-week program offered from July 2nd - August 16th for youth from kindergarten - grade 12. Our goal is to provide young learners with an opportunity to develop and refine their literacy, artistic, and interpersonal skills during the summer months. This is done through various activities such as crafts, games, stories, and library time. Participants will be divided into one of the four age groups included in the program, each of which will meet on a specified weekday for either an hour and a half or two hours.

Registration opens Saturday, June 15 at 10:00 am

Please note that children must have a library card to register. Please stop by the library prior to registration to obtain a FREE library card.

*Register your child in the group for the grade they will complete by June 30, 2024.*
