Welcome to TD Summer Reading Club at Winnipeg Public Library. Things are a little bit different this year, as everything is all online. This page is here to highlight the awesome games, activities, eBooks, and programs available on the TD Summer Reading Club website. Watch the video below from the TD Summer Reading Club to see how their website works, and then visit the official site to sign up.
We also have lots of fun summer reading programs for families and school-age children from the Winnipeg Public Library that you can do at home. Check out the family programs, school-age programs, and french programs tabs for more information.
Download a June summer reading calendar from the link below and colour in each of the days you read this summer. The calendar is available in English and French and you'll find fun activities to do as a family on the back of the calendar. Check back each month for a new calendar with new activities.
Many thanks to the Friends of the Winnipeg Public Library for their generous donation of book prizes. Please check the TD Summer Reading Club Info Guide at the end of summer for more information about prize draws.
Kids can generate web access codes directly on our website. This allows them to create their own digital notebooks, which link to their respective library systems. Kids can track their reading by adding the books they read over the summer to their digital notebooks. There is also a special section in their notebooks to record reading material other than books, such as games and recipes. Kids can personalize their notebooks with a nickname and avatar, and the notebook will store any contributions kids make to other parts of our website, such as jokes and stories (see below). Each time a kid adds a book or submits content, they are rewarded with a digital badge that is stored in their notebook.
There are ebooks for all ages and interests, and in both English and French. Once kids set up their online notebooks, they can access the ebooks at any time over the summer—no waiting lists or restrictions!
This is an 8-book tournament in which two books battle for top choice each week. All of the books are available as ebooks, so kids can read the books online and then vote for their favourite. At the end of the summer one book will be crowned as the summer’s champion.
Our silly stories ask kids to add their own words to a pre-written, hidden story. Once kids fill in the word prompts, the full story is revealed—and it’s usually silly! We also have story starters, where kids continue writing a story that we’ve started for them. Kids can read the story endings that other kids have submitted.
Kean Soo has written an original web comic called The Transfer Student. Kids can read it and then participate in discussion questions with other kids. For bilingual kids, Yves Bourgelas has written an original web comic in French that they can check out as well.
