What is the TD Summer Reading Club?
A book or story, a library, our country: What do they all have in common? Each one welcomes you, inspires you, makes room for new ideas, and gives you space to explore and shape your identity. In the year of Canada's 150th birthday, the TD Summer Reading Club invites kids to celebrate what makes books, libraries and Canada great, by encouraging them to open up to new ideas, new characters, new landscapes, and to one another.
The free club kit consists of a reading notebook, a web access code postcard, and stickers! When children complete their reading log notebooks, their names will be entered in a draw to win a Chapters gift certificate. Additional Chapters draws will be done in June, July and August from all Summer Reading Club registrants.
