Summer Reading Programs

TD Summer Reading Club

The theme for 2012 is Imagine!

We have created ordering lists in the Coordinated Collection Development Tool for you to order books related to this year's theme.  Please contact Wendy wsears@yrl.ab.ca for more information. 

Once again this year, TD Bank Financial Group, the Toronto Public Library and Library and Archives Canada are proud to support literacy in Canada by offering the TD Summer Reading Club to Canadian children across the nation in both English and French. Check out the brand new website, http://www.tdsummerreadingclub.ca/ for more info.

The goals of the TD Summer Reading Club are to encourage and strengthen the habit of reading for pleasure to create life-long learners, to increase children's reading skills and reduce summer learning loss.

This year TD SRC is supporting Early Literacy through the release of a new preschool activity booklet.  Check out this presentation for ideas on how to add Early Literacy components into your SRC program.
