TD’s Sum­mer Read­ing Club launched in Town­ships

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Vic­to­ria Vanier

TD Sum­mer Read­ing Club is a free, fam­ily-ori­ented bilin­gual pro­gram that aims to give young peo­ple a taste for read­ing in the sum­mer. For the 18th edi­tion, the TD Sum­mer Read­ing Club will take place in al­most 400 li­braries all over Que­bec, twenty-one of those in the Estrie re­gion. Nearby li­braries that are par­tic­i­pat­ing in­clude the Haskell Free Li­brary, in Stanstead, the Len­noxville Li­brary, the Mem­phrem­a­gog Li­brary (Ma­gog), Fran­coise Mau­rice Li­brary (Coat­i­cook), Comp­ton Li­brary, Rock For­est Li­brary, Eva Senecal Li­brary (Sher­brooke), and the Water­ville Li­brary.

in­still­ing the love of sum­mer read­ing in young peo­ple, the Club also brings fam­i­lies to­gether in a shared ac­tiv­ity and re­in­forces self-es­teem. To take part in the free Club, par­ents only have to register their chil­dren at the near­est par­tic­i­pat­ing li­brary. They will re­ceive, for free, a sum­mer read­ing kit with a read­ing book­let and twelve stick­ers to help mo­ti­vate them. There will also be free ac­tiv­i­ties at the li­braries and a web­site (www. td­sum­mer­read­ing­club.ca) where kids can dis­cover new books to read, read com­ments about the books by other read­ers, share sto­ries and jokes with other read­ers across Canada.

li­braries will also be pro­mot­ing twenty ‘star’ books, ten in English and ten in French, that have been cho­sen by young read­ers and were writ­ten and il­lus­trated by Cana­dian artists.
