The wonderful people who put together the TD Summer Reading Club have put together a fun toolkit to help parents, teachers, and librarians prep for summer reading. If you’re looking for ways to keep (or get) your kids interested in summer reading, this is a great place to start. There is a fun quiz to start, which will help determine what type of summer reading club your child might be interested in, and then a download with tons of suggestions province-wide. Even if you happen to be leaving the area for the summer, most libraries do participate in the TD Summer Reading Club, in some way, shape, or form. While we all do something a little bit different, everyone will have access to the stickers and booklets as motivation.
If you’re in Carleton Place this summer, don’t forget, we have our Library Lemonade Stand Summer Reading Kick-Off on Thursday, June 29th from 1:30 – 3:30pm. We’ll be handing out information for summer reading, giving out invitations, and answering all your questions about the program. We have some fun things planned for our readers…so stay tuned!
