Going away for the summer? No problem! Join the YPL Summer Reading Club. 

I've joined the YPL Summer Reading Club! Now what do I do???

  • Read! Read! Read! You can also listen to someone else read or tell you a story. Read or listen to anything you like: books, audiobooks, e-books, magazies, comics, or newspapers. Try setting a goal to read every day!
  • You can read or listen to stories whenever and wherever you like, in any language.
  • In your reading record, there are seven pages, one for each week. Colour and check off one of the pictures for each day that you read (one picture = one day of reading)
  • Use the space beside the picture to write down what you read that day. If you read the same book over several days, you can just write down the pages or chapters you read. If you read more than one book in a day, write down the one you liked best.
  • When you have read for at least 7 days, come into the library and show us and you'll get a sticker!
  • Collect all 7 stickers in your reading log to get a certificate of completion and enter to win prizes.
  • If you're in town for the summer visit the library often to get new books and to take part in the fun weekly summer reading programs!
  • And join us at the end of summer parties and win great prizes!!

We look forward to seeing you and your family this summer!
