Tree Planting Time!

ReForest London needs your help planting the trees from our TD Summer Reading Program. It's going to be a beautiful day on Saturday, so grab a shovel and dig in! Volunteer hours are available for high school students.

Summer Reading Club Registration this Saturday

Don't forget to bring in your kids to register for this summer's reading program. Registration starts this Saturday at all library locations.

Splash! Celebrate Summer: TD Summer Reading Club 2011

Summer is over and so is this year’s TD Summer Reading Club - - Splash! Celebrate Summer. We had lots of fun playing our Splash! Game Board with the 5,752 kids who signed up this year. All those who joined received a poster, 9 stickers, a bilingual activity booklet, a “Splash” wallet for their library cards, and a free pass to the Western Fair.

During the 8-week program, kids visited the Library and read over 20,000 books. There were weekly draw prizes, book reports, and crafts which added to the fun. We also took the Libro Library Road Show to many areas of the City to give children a chance to participate who couldn’t easily make it into a neighbourhood Library location.

An exciting addition this year was a partnership with ReForest London to provide an extra incentive and reward to children registered in the program. For every 25 books read, ReForest London pledged to plant 1 tree. We met and exceeded our goal of reading 20,000 books. As a result, ReForest London will plant over 814 trees!

The tree planting will happen on two Saturdays: October 8 and October 22. Please join other readers and their families as we plant hundreds of trees. You can find more information about these events at:

We look forward to another great summer next year and hope you will join us for the TD Summer Reading Club 2012.
