2021 TD Summer Reading Club

The TD Summer Reading Club is Canada’s biggest, bilingual summer reading program for kids of all ages, interests and abilities. This free Club is offered at more than 2,000 public libraries across Canada, as well as online. The Club celebrates Canadian authors, illustrators and stories, and inspires kids to explore the fun of reading their way. This is key to building a lifelong love of reading.

Check with the Marathon Public Library to see when in-person registration opens—it varies slightly by year but is usually in mid- to late-June. Your child will receive a free notebook and stickers to track their reading. We will also have fun activities and initiatives for kids to take part in!
