Summer Reading Club 2022

TD Summer Reading Club is Canada's biggest, bilingual summer reading program for kids of all ages, all interests, and all abilities.

Join MPL's 2022 TD Summer Reading Club program to engage your kids in reading, learning, and socializing throughout the summer. We are offering the Summer Reading Club in person and virtual for your convenience.

We know children learn much better while having fun and socializing so what better way to do that with reading, joining virtual zoom meetups, and visiting the library for in-person activities. We are fully open, so let the fun begin!

We are thrilled to bring back our Weekly Zoom Meetups for children (Kindergarten to Grade 8) to enjoy fun and games with their peers. Children under 4 can enjoy our indoor and outdoor storytimes at your local branch!

The TD Summer Reading Club program will begin the week of July 1- August 12, 2022. There are 6 weeks guaranteed to keep your children busy learning, laughing and reading. It is open to participants from preschool to Grade 8.

Registration begins June 18th via the Reader zone app.
