Who Won?

It’s the official end to our summer programs, and along with that, we’re drawing for the last of our prizes. What’s up for grabs?  For our young readers, it is this HUGE gift basket full of fun items like books, games, candy and toys!

20150826_104816For our teen readers, we’ve made the draw for our second signed book…Megan Crewe’s EARTH & SKY.

20150826_104757And for the adult summer readers, we’ve got another fantastic gift basket, filled with fun items!

20150826_104843Congratulations to all our winners this summer!

Book Bucks Week is Coming!

It’s almost here…what all our teen readers have been waiting for:







Our windows are being prepped, the secret items are being priced, we’re stacking boxes so we can re-fill at a moment’s notice and we’re expecting LOTS of readers to come in with their book bucks. They’ve been reading and saving, reading some more and saving some more, and we’re excited that we’ve had so many kids participate in our version of the wonderful TD Summer Reading Club this summer.

If you know someone who has been participating, remind them to drop by anytime between Monday, August 12 – Saturday, August 17 to spend, spend, SPEND!  We’ll also be holding a Book Buck Spending Week in September, so there’s no hurry.

Happy Spending!


This week, we drew for all the prizes in our TD Summer Reading Program wrap-up! We had over 70 prizes to give away, all generously donated by local businesses such as the Bulk Barn, A&W, the TD Bank, McDonald’s and more. We had one very special Grand Prize, consisting of an extremely large gift basket full of great items and we were thrilled it went to such a super reader! Congratulations, Abby!

We were also thrilled that Agent G. is going home with a special family and a certain sweet little girl who will no doubt take good care of him. We hope she’ll bring him by for a visit every so often!

Now, we’re emptying out the office as kids come in to pick up their prizes.  It’ll be nice to have a bit more floor space soon. But we certainly had fun this summer!

Our Grand Prize is ready!

It’s August 1st, and this morning, our grand prize for the TD Summer Reading Program 2012 at the Carleton Place Public Library, is out on display!! What will one lucky reader win?  Well, it’s a VERY large basket filled with treats of all kinds.  I won’t give anything away, but there are books, toys, games, candy and much, much more inside. 

The prize draws will take place the first week of September, so there’s still plenty of time for the kids to read. And don’t worry….there are LOTS of other prizes to be won.  It’s going to be  exciting!

Just what is this?

We’re getting ready!  Next week, we’ll draw for prizes for the TD Summer Reading Program!  And these are the bags and boxes lining our office floor, stocked with goodies for all the names we’ll draw.  The kids have been reading and putting their ballots into the shark’s mouth all summer in hopes of winning the Grand Prize…..or one of these great prizes! Thank you to all of our generous prize donors…..Bulk Barn, Giant Tiger, The Lions Club, A & W, and The TD Bank!

Who’ll win?  We’ll know next week. Good luck everyone!
