About the 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 your local public library to see when in-person registration opens—it varies slightly by location but is usually in mid- to late-June. Your kid will receive a free notebook and stickers to track their reading. Your library may also have fun activities and initiatives for Kids to take part in.

“It’s great. I love the community, the experience and the enjoyment of putting a new book in my log book.”

“I have been in this club every year since 2018 and I love it! The atmosphere here is always so positive and welcoming. I have made a lot of friends here and I look forward to coming back next year.”

“TD Summer Reading Club is an excellent way to encourage reading to children, and I've been motivated to read since I've been in the club.”
