About the TD Summer Reading Club

The TD Summer Reading Club is back! From June 13 to September 3, kids can join the Club at their local library branch and participate in-person or online all summer long.

The TD Summer Reading Club offers a variety of free, fun reading-related activities for children of all ages to keep them reading all summer long! Club participants can read whatever they’d like throughout the summer and report on the books read to library staff to earn stickers.

How it works

  1. Starting June 13 visit your local library branch to sign up your child for the Club, and get their reading kit. Or sign up online, where you and your child can track their reading and earn virtual badges.

    Get Your Sumer Read On! Kids who sign up on the Beanstack app between June 13-27 will be entered into a contest to win a wonder-full prize!

  2. Read for fun! Have your child read what they enjoy and try some of our recommended reads.

  3. Visit to vote in the Battle of the Books, post reviews, write stories, read and write jokes, participate in weekly trivia, watch author/illustrator readings and workshops and more.

The TD Summer Reading Club is accessible for kids of all abilities, no matter how they read! Ask library staff about getting the content of the Club notebook in accessible formats. You can also download the materials from the national TD Summer Reading Club website.

Online French Reading Challenge

The Club is a bilingual! Children who read in French can tell us about what they’ve been reading, and get entered into a draw at the end of the Summer. The Online French Reading Challenge starts on June 13.
