Accessible notebooks

Libraries will receive large-print notebooks and a promotional item to display to let families know that libraries offer accessible materials. Libraries will receive these in May 2022.

Please see the plan for accessibility page for more information about accessible notebooks in a variety of formats (audio, large print, braille and open dyslexic font), and for practical tips to ensure that your Club is accessible and inclusive for everyone.

Web access sticker

The web access code is printed on a sticker that kids can attach to the inside cover of their notebook. They enter their web access code on the TD Summer Reading Club website (live as of June 13, 2022). Each sticker contains a unique code that enables kids and families to create an online notebook, read ebooks, and track their reading and other website submissions.

Please note that kids can also generate a web access code directly on our website.

This item is bilingual.
