CORN­WALL, Ontario - Read­ing can re­ally take you places, and not just in the sense that each book is an ad­ven­ture.

From July 3 to Aug. 31, kids age 0 to 10 can ride Corn­wall Tran­sit for free with a guardian, who also rides free, if they have their sum­mer Read to Ride li­brary card from the Corn­wall Li­brary. Chil­dren aged 11 to 13 can also ride for free with this pro­gram along with one friend.

The Read to Ride pro­gram is in its eleventh year this year. Kids can get their li­brary car from the Corn­wall Li­brary start­ing on July 3. Read to Ride li­brary cards will have a green tran­sit logo in the top left cor­ner.

“This pro­gram is a win, win, win,” said Len Tapp, di­vi­sion man­ager of Corn­wall Tran­sit. “We’re en­cour­ag­ing read­er­ship and lit­er­acy, as well as rid­er­ship. The li­brary card be­comes a bus pass for the sum­mer.”

The Read to Ride pro­gram also co­in­cides with the TD Sum­mer Read­ing Club. Through par­tic­i­pat­ing in the club and through read­ing the TD Sum­mer Read­ing Club of­fers some great ti­tles to en­joy and some fan­tas­tic prizes to win.

There will be a party for the TD Sum­mer Read­ing Club on Aug. 23 at the Corn­wall Civic Com­plex, Sa­lon B from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
