TD Summer Reading Club. Reading Fun for kids, from Canada's public libraries

Get Your Summer Read On!

West Lincoln Public Library strives to include all children in the joy of reading during the summer months. Engaging children in summer reading connects families with books and libraries, builds children's confidence in and excitement about reading, and helps children retain reading skills over the summer.

TD Summer Reading Club's Get Your Summer Read On Day is the official registration "kick off" for the 2018 TD Summer Reading Club across Canada. Register early at any of our branches so you can join in the fun June 16th at 11:00AM when the Summer Reading Club begins and Mad Science stops by with a Spectacular Science Show!
