TD Summer Reading Club at the Milton Public Library

Every year the Milton Public Library launches the TD Summer Reading Club with a big event in mid-late June. Children can register for the Reading Club during this event, or any time after.

Once children are registered they:

1.     Read books

2.     Record what they have read in their logbooks

3.     Report on what they have read

Children are encouraged to read books at their own reading level and to read as much as they possibly can. Staff are always available to help them find some great books if they don’t know what to read next. After they complete a book, they simply record it in the logbook they received at registration.  Finally, when they visit the library, they will show their logbook to the library staff and talk about what they have been reading. Children are encouraged to check in with staff weekly, or as much as possible, throughout the summer.

When children come into the library to show our library staff their logbook, they will likely be asked a question like “which book was your favourite book this week, and why was it your favourite?” Or, “What happened in this book?” Library staff will check off the books that have been read so far and reward the child with a ballot for each book read (children reading longer books will receive more than one ballot per book) to enter in the prize draws. A maximum of 50 ballots per child, will be awarded for the entire summer.

A wide variety of prize packages will be available for the Reading Club registrants to win. They will be invited to put their ballots into their favourite prize boxes. The more they read = the more chances they have to win!

Opportunities for bonus ballots will also become available throughout the summer months – so be sure to watch for those!

The prize draws take place towards the end of August and all winners will be notified via telephone.

Further details about our 2018 TD Summer Reading Club, will be available in the spring of 2018. Stay tuned!
