The Halton Hills Public Library is your place for summer fun! The library offers many great programs and services for young people during the summer months.

During branch closures for COVID-19 precautions, all summer programs and services are available online.

 

TD Summer Reading Club

The TD Summer Reading Club (SRC) is a program for kids up to 12 years of age. 

Kids read for 30 minutes a day (for confident readers) or are read to for 15 minutes a day (for pre-readers or emerging readers). Kids who read for 21 days will earn a prize pack that can be picked up at the library, and will be entered into a draw for a chance to win $25.

The Summer Reading Club is sponsored by the TD Bank.

NEW!!! Starting this year, there are two ways to participate: Online through the Beanstack App, or through self-tracking (no app needed.)

 Beanstack App

Our new Beanstack app makes it easy for families to join the SRC.

Starting Saturday, June 20th, download the Beanstack Tracker app or sign up for Beanstack online to register for the Kids’ TD Summer Reading Challenge.

You can find the Beanstack app on the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. 

Self-Tracking (No App Needed)

 For Parents: Benefits of Participation

Have you heard of the “summer slump”?  Studies show that children lose reading skills over the summer months if they do not continue to read while they are out of school.   Joining the TD Summer Reading Club (SRC) and participating in online library programs will keep kids of all ages, interests, and abilities reading!

  • Encourages kids of all ages, interests, and abilities to read during the summer.
  • For pre or emerging readers,  help develop early literacy skills.
