The Perth & District Library is pleased to launch this year’s TD Summer Reading Club!
TD Summer Reading Club is Canada’s biggest, bilingual summer reading program for kids of all ages, all interests, and all abilities. This free program is co-created and delivered by more than 2,000 public libraries across Canada. It celebrates Canadian authors, illustrators and stories. It’s designed to inspire kids to explore the fun of reading their way – the key to building a lifelong love of reading.
The Perth & District Library will be offering the Summer Reading Club to everyone of all ages. Track your reading and you can win prizes! Reading Club registration begins at the Library and online at www.perthunionlibrary.ca on June 22. You get a free book when you register, and you can register anytime through the summer!
Children ages 0-12 are invited to pick up a free summer reading backpack filled with activities from the Library when they register for the Club. There will be prizes awarded for the most books read, as well as a draw for two new bikes generously donated by Canadian Tire, Perth. The Library will also be offering in-person programs Monday-Thursday aimed at ages 5-12, and Babytime in Stewart Park Tuesdays at 10:30am.
“This year’s theme is Myths and Legends. We have engaging fun programs planned for the summer that will see the community enjoying all that the library has to offer ,” said Heidi Taber, the library’s Children & Teen Services Specialist.
For teens and adults, there will be a monthly draw for prizes. You can also borrow the eBook or audiobook of The Girl in His Shadow by Audrey Blake from our digital collection with no waitlists or holds, from July 13-27, as part of the Big Library Read.
