How do I sign up?
Come into any of our 18 Library locations, starting June 13th, to register to play Imagine: 2012 TD Summer Reading Club, a joint initiative with Library and Archives Canada.
How much does it cost?
It's FREE! Kids 12 and under can also sign up for a FREE library card so they can take home some great books.
How does it work?
When you sign up, you will receive an activity booklet, a poster, and your first of nine weekly reading logs. Weekly reading logs will be released every Wednesday starting June 13th. Every time you complete a weekly reading log, you will receive a sticker that you can add to your activity booklet!
There is a ballot on each weekly reading log for you to record your own summer reading and to enter our weekly draws. This year's grand prize is a Lego prize - with each of our 18 Library locations giving one away!
The program ends August 31st, so remember to get your ballots in on time!
Who can play?
Babies, preschoolers, and children of all ages can participate this summer. There will be special books and prizes for kids 0-5, with fun activities for kids and parents to do together.
Why join the Summer Reading Club?
Studies show that children may lose reading skills over the summer months. However, children who continue to read during this time maintain and even gain literacy skills. Reading opens doors to a world of imagination and knowledge. Enthusiastic readers make better students and will develop an association with books and learning that will last a lifetime. By visiting the Calgary Public Library regularly and participating in the summer reading program, you will help your child develop and sustain these crucial skills.
