Summer reading club at P.E.I. libraries – The Journal Leader


Summertime is almost here, which implies it is time again for the TD Summer Season Reading Club at libraries across P.E.I.

The TD Summertime Checking Out Club is Canada’s biggest bilingual summertime reading program for kids of all ages, all interests and all abilities.

Research has revealed that school-age children lose a number of their reading abilities over the summertime if they do not continue to read while they run out school.

Libraries use summer season reading clubs to ensure kids keep reading and have enjoyable doing so.

The P.E.I. Town library Service partners with the Centre for Equitable Library Access to make sure students with print specials needs can completely take part in the program.

Children signing up for the program are encouraged to read 15 minutes a day, have access to a variety of online resources and have the ability to attend complimentary programs.

Students and even preschoolers are welcomed to register at the library for the TD Summer Reading Club.

All ages are invited to join the Summerside Rotary Library summertime launch celebration on June 22 at 10: 30 a.m.

The O’Leary Town library will be hosting the provincial launch party on June 22 at 10: 30 a.m.

Starting June 24, the Summerside Rotary Library will use free weekly summer reading programs for all ages.

The style for this year is “Natural World”.

The schedule consists of complimentary programs for children ages five to eight years on Tuesdays at 10: 30 a.m., teens age 13 and up on Tuesdays at 1: 30 p.m., ages nine to 12 on Wednesdays at 10: 30 a.m., preschoolers on Thursdays at 10: 30 a.m. and a program for any ages on Saturdays at 10: 30 a.m.
