2012 TD Summer Reading Club kicks off at Cornwall Public Library

June 21, 2012

Read to Ride

Imagine! Yes, imagine your children having fun at the Cornwall Public Library this summer, simply by reading and seeing themselves as a magician, a knight, or a chatelaine.  

The official launch of the 2012 Summer Reading Club was held at the Library on Wednesday, June 20th. The program will run from July 3rd to August 9th.

The main goal of the reading club is to keep kids, aged 3 to 13 years, reading throughout the summer months. All the library programmes will be presented.

Read to Ride, another component of the reading club, allows members to ride the Cornwall Transit buses for free during the months of July and August.  This year, if they are 11 to 13 years old, they can bring a friend as well.  

After the presentations, children will be invited to do a craft, a standard, worthy of any great family in the Middle Ages.  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, as well as the many Cornwall organizations and businesses who support the program.

For more info or to register for the program, please visit the Youth and Children's Services section of the Library or call (613) 932-4796.
