Join the TD Summer Reading Club

You Can Still Join the Coolest Club in Town!

There is still time to register for the TD Summer Reading Club!

Did you know?  Kids can participate in the club anytime, anywhere – at home, online, on the road or wherever their summer takes them.

Although meetings are not required, throughout the summer there will be fun check-in meetings for kids to update us on their progress and hear recommendations from fellow book enthusiasts and staff. 

Pick up your free materials at your local KFPL branch, and visit the TD Summer Reading Club website to explore recommended reads; join in activities; write jokes, stories and book reviews, and more!
