Covid-19 has changed many of our interactions and the TD Summer Reading Club that the TSPL hosts is now different. Because we aren’t doing any traditional programming this summer, the TD Summer Reading Club has moved to an online event.
Children are still encouraged to read as many books as they can over the summer and log them online. Studies have shown the benefits to students who read over the summer. Under the new format, there are books online in both English and French that children can read or they can read their own books and log them.
The TD Summer Reading Club website also has lots of fun activities for children! They can share jokes, write stories, do trivia, print colouring sheets, and participate in battle of the books. There is a site monitor who ensures content is appropriate for children so it’s a safe environment for children to share.
When you sign your child up, you will be provided a web access code to log into the site and are asked to make up a username, which is different from your child’s name. There is no library card required to register, you just have to choose Temiskaming Shores Public Library as your library.
Over the summer, we will share additional activities on our Facebook and Instagram accounts, so make sure you follow us for more fun!
