Unleash your curiosity and sense of adventure with the TD Summer Reading Club at Orangeville Public Library

June 20, 2024   ·   0 Comments

The TD Summer Reading Club is back at the Orangeville Public Library, designed to inspire kids to explore the fun of reading their way. Throughout the summer, kids will have access to exciting programs, activities, and reading challenges.

Registration for the reading club is completely free – and with so many ways to check out books at the Orangeville Public Library, reading materials are endless.

“Empowering kids to discover engaging stories, whatever the format, is the key to building a lifelong love of reading,” said Lauren Tilly, Program and Research Librarian. “The badge system is a fun way to get kids reading – they feel a real sense of accomplishment with each minute they read.”

Last year, participants in Orangeville logged an impressive 122,093 minutes of reading. The library is aiming to beat that goal this year.

The TD Summer Reading Club kicks off at the Town of Orangeville’s Canada Day Celebrations on Monday, July 1. Visit the Alder Street Recreation Centre between 11:45 a.m. to 5 p.m. to enjoy family friendly activities and pick up information about the library’s fun summer programs.
