From June 22 to August 17, register at any London Public Library location for our Go! TD Summer Reading Club!
Kids will receive a passport to reading, a wallet, Go! magazine and stickers. All summer long, read anything you want - picture books, comics, magazines, chapter books - then drop in during library hours to tell staff about the exciting places you've traveled in the books! Staff will stamp your passport and give you a ballot to enter the weekly draw for tons of great prizes!
Can't get to the library? Don't worry. This summer you can report online about what you've read and still be entered in the location of your choosing for the weekly prize draw. Also, check out the weekly online book polls and other great stuff on the website! All this starts on June 22nd!
The whole world awaits at the library this summer!

Safiyah is a ten year orphaned girl living in a slum outside of Nairobi, Kenya with her grandmother. She dreams of going to school and learning to read but is too poor. To buy food for herself and her grandmother, she scours the dump for things she can sell. Among the dirt, slime and rats, she finds glossy magazines with beautiful, colourful pictures of places and things she can only dream about. Although Safiyah's life is hard, she covers her shack with pictures from the magazine to create a work of art that might give her a chance for a better life.
Did you ever find pictures in a book that you couldn't stop looking at?
