Summer is almost halfway done… are your kids bored yet?! Thankfully, the Toronto Public Library branches have reopened and TPL has many different ways of entertaining and educating them, online at home as well.

TD Summer Reading Club – Help kids stay motivated with the TD Summer Reading Club – it’s free for all ages, interests and abilities. More than 2,200 public libraries across Canada participate in the program, but this year it is all online so that you can access it from wherever you are this summer! To join the fun, simply sign up online and create your virtual notebook and start tracking. Registering will give you access to free ebooks and online activities too. The TD Summer Reading Club makes reading fun with jokes, trivia questions, comics and more!


Ready For Reading – Unfortunately the KidStops and Discovery Zones in branches are still unavailable, but this webpage intended for children aged 5 and under has book recommendations in all genres and reading levels, and links to YouTube programs.


Teens – Teenaged library patrons have a dedicated online hub with book recommendations in all genres, links to online programs and workshops, sources for homework help and volunteering opportunities, and an online escape room.
