Summer Reading Club
The Library offers the Summer Reading Club for their young patrons (12 years and under) on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday in July and August.
The Club is based on a program developed by the Toronto Public Library and funded by the Toronto Dominion Bank. Through a variety of games, crafts and stories, the club offers the children a structured reading environment and rewards them for their personal achievements. The program promotes the fun of reading with the young patrons and increases their attendance at the library for the summer months.
There is no charge for attending this fun-filled club but pre- registration will be required.
Watch for posters and announcements at your library.
