It’s time to register for the TD Summer Reading Club at the Orangeville Public Library. It only takes a few minutes to register in person or online through the library’s website. Studies show that kids who keep reading throughout the summer do better when they return to school in the fall. The TD Summer Reading Club is an ideal way to keep kids engaged while they are having fun.
The library will kick off a summer of reading fun with the “Get Your Summer Read On Day” at the Orangeville Farmers’ Market. You can register for the 2018 TD Summer Reading Club at the market and receive your notebook to track your summer reads. This is your chance to learn more about the library’s fun drop-in summer programs, play games, take a photo with a special costume character, and meet the library’s summer students.
New this summer is a beginner Makey Makey program for children age 8 to 12 to explore circuits and coding. Makey Makey is a fun invention kit that turns everyday objects into touchpads. Each week on Monday there is a different STEM activity. Makey Mondays is the only summer program that requires pre-registration. Parents can register online or at either library location.
“We are delighted that our 2017 program was recognized with an Honourable Mention for the national TD Summer Reading Club Library Awards,” said Library CEO Darla Fraser. “These awards recognize the most innovative and effective TD Summer Reading programs across Canada. We encourage families in our community to register for the 2018 TD Summer Reading Club so we can make this summer our best yet.”
The TD Summer Reading Club is intended for children age 12 and under. Pre-readers are encouraged to join in on the fun by reading with a parent.
