Summer Reading Club kicks off at Cornwall Public Library

June 18, 2013

Cornwall Public Library

What are you planning to do this Summer? Whether you go to the cottage, on a trip, or simply stay at home for some well-earned rest and relaxation, the Cornwall Public Library is the place to be!

The official launch of the 2013 Summer Reading Club is being held in the Library parking lot - in a Cornwall Transit Bus no less - on Tuesday, June 18th, from 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm.   

The main goal of the reading club is to keep kids, aged 3 to 13 years, reading throughout the summer months. During the launch, officials will introduce all of the library programs, and the Memorandum of Understanding will be signed by Len Tapp, Division Manager of Cornwall Transit and Dawn Kiddell, CEO of the Cornwall Public Library. 

The city bus represents the Read to Ride component of the reading club, which allows members to ride Cornwall Transit buses for free during the months of July and August.  If the kids are 11 to 13 years old, they can bring a friend as well who rides for free.  Read to Ride is by far one of the Library's most popular programs of the year.

After the presentations, children will be invited to do a craft, a huge painting created by using different modes of transportation.  The door prize for the launch is a pass for a family of four (2 adults, 2 children) for the Calypso Waterpark, a value of $150.

The library would like to take the opportunity to highlight the participation of the TD Bank who is a national sponsor for this project.   On a more local level, we would like to note the generosity of many Cornwall organizations and businesses.

For more information on the reading club, please contact the Library at (613) 932-4796.
