Welcome to PEPL's Summer Reading Club!

What is the Summer Reading Club?

The PEPL Summer Reading Club is part of the TD Summer Reading Club, Canada’s biggest, summer reading program for kids of all ages, all interests, and all abilities. This free program is co-created and delivered by more than 2,000 public libraries across Canada. 

The Summer Reading Club is designed to inspire kids to explore the fun of reading their way – the key to building a lifelong love of reading. Participants can explore recommended reading list; track their own reading; join in activities, and connect with other readers in their community. Plus every book read is another chance to win cool prizes!
