About the program

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 child 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.

The TD Summer Reading Club website launches on June 12, 2024. Kids can:

  • Create an online notebook
  • Read ebooks
  • Vote in the Battle of the Books
  • Review books
  • Participate in weekly trivia
  • Write stories
  • Read and write jokes
  • Read an original web comic
  • View author/illustrator readings and workshops
  • Print colouring sheets
  • Find the perfect book

There’s something for everyone, including kids with print disabilities, and preschoolers and their families.

“It helps me set my reading goals for the summer break. It’s super interactive and cool! “
“I am very glad to take part in a club with other readers and writers this summer. I’m trying lots of new books I haven’t heard of before because of this club.”
“It’s great you can have contact with other friends. I love it and will be joining again.”
We're proud to be a part of summer programming in these public libraries across Canada
