Libraries across the country are once again inviting kids to crack open their favourite books and immerse themselves in exciting stories and novels with the TD Summer Reading Club. The 2022 edition launches on June 13 when kids across Canada can sign up through their local library and/or online at www.tdsrc.ca. Once registered, kids can pick up their free reading kit, which includes a notebook and stickers to track progress. A special notebook has also been produced so that kids with print disabilities can fully participate.

The TD Summer Reading Club program has something for all ages, interests, and abilities. For the 2022 edition, there are a ton of activities available online that participants can discover at their own pace. This year’s Club features a web comic written by Canadian author and illustrator Soyeon Kim. Kids can read, listen to, and comment on the web comic throughout the summer.

Kids can read e-books, track their reading, discover books of the week, write reviews, and much more. The reading club aims to encourage kids to read for pleasure; wherever and whenever they want. Sitting in a tree, at the breakfast table, or cozied up in a tent — however they go about it, studies show that kids who keep reading throughout the summer do better when they return to school in the fall. The reading club is an ideal way to keep kids engaged and improve reading performance.

About the TD Summer Reading Club

This club is Canada’s biggest, bilingual summer reading program for kids of all ages, interests, and abilities. Co-created and delivered by more than 2,200 libraries across Canada, this free national program is developed by Toronto Public Library in partnership with Library and Archives Canada. Sponsorship is provided by TD Bank Group.

The club helps to connect families with books, and it helps to build confidence in reading through the delivery of fun, accessible reading activities.

Real impact

It’s big – and getting bigger every year. A recent tally of TD Summer Reading Club numbers shows the significant impact of the program: 831,546 participants in more than 45 000 programs that were delivered by 2,050 library branches across the country.
