Summer Reading

We have summer reading challenges for kids, teens and adults. 

Watch this page and our Facebook page for updates on how to participate and what the challenges will look like in Summer 2021.

TD Summer Reading Club (ages 0-12)

Our 2021 TD Summer Reading Club runs July 5 to August 27, 2021.

Kids ages 0-12 can track their reading and submit book reviews all summer long through our ReadSquared online platform or App (links coming soon). 

Participants will also be entered in a draw for a chance to win a prize each time they log their books or submit a book review.

More than 1,300 kids participate in this program every summer!

If you have limited access to Internet or would prefer an offline option for summer reading activities, check out our printable summer reading booklet, which will be available at either the Main or St. Paul Branches beginning July 5. 

This reading booklet includes book tracking logs, reading reflection activities, and a memoir writing worksheet.  

Teen Summer Reading Challenge (grades 7-12)

How many books can you read this Summer? 

From July 5 to August 27, you can keep track of your books and write thoughtful reviews for your chance to win weekly prizes throughout July and August.

Reviews can be submitted through our ReadSquared online platform or app (links coming soon).

Participants that read a minimum of six books and receive a ballot for our END OF SUMMER GRAND PRIZE!

Additional ballots will be given for the grand prize for each book read and reviewed beyond those first six books. The more you read, the more entries you submit, the more chances you get to win prizes!

Adult Summer Reading Challenge

A summer reading challenge for people over the ages of 18. 

Adults can win great prizes by reading and and submitting a synopsis or review of the book. These can be submitted through an online form or through our ReadSquared online platform and app. Links to register and track will be posted soon.

You can earn bonus entries by submitting book reviews or tagging our Facebook page in a review you write on Facebook. Just @brantfordlibrary when writing your Facebook review. 

We will have regular draws throughout the summer for the chance to win a $50 gift card. Plus, we'll have an end-of-year draw for $150 in gift cards.
