Join the Library’s Summer Reading Programs
Guelph Public Library is excited to launch their annual Summer Reading programs for all ages on Monday, June 12, 2023. Drop by any library location to pick up your reading club package then just read anytime, anywhere whether on a device, listening to audiobooks or even reading upside down!
“Our summer reading programs are a great way to keep children engaged and enthusiastic about reading while school is out, helping to avoid the summer slide,” shares Meg Forestell-Page, Supervisor of Community Engagement. “By joining these programs as a family, you can lead by example and help to build your child’s confidence in and excitement about reading. It’s all about having fun while reading.”
It’s easy to participate. Here’s how:
- Starting Monday, June 13, drop by any library location to pick up your summer reading club package.
- For children, ages birth to 12 years, fill out your printed reading log each time you read then submit it to any location or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org by September 4, 2023. Prize draws will be held in mid-September. You can also set up an online account at tdsummerreadingclub.ca for extra challenges and activities like battle of the books, weekly trivia questions, book reviews to collect badges and more. Note: You can submit as many reading logs as you wish!
- For teens and adults, pick up your Bingo card at any location or download/print the teen or adult bingo cards via the library’s website. Read books in any of the categories listed to earn a Bingo by completing a horizontal, vertical or diagonal line. Write the book titles you read on the back of the card. Drop off your bingo card to any library location or snap a photo of your completed card and email it to email@example.com by September 4, 2023. Prize draws will be held in mid-September. Note: You can enter as many times as you complete a BINGO and as many cards as you wish!
