Myths and legends logo

The TD Summer Reading Club is a FREE program that encourages children to read over the summer break. Children who read over the summer go back to school better prepared to succeed. This year we will be encouraging the use of creativity, cooperation, and individuality through play, teamwork, and of course reading! The Summer Reading Club is open to children 5+ who attended school in 2021/22. If your children have not yet started school, we have Read and Rhyme and we will have special events for little ones and all ages throughout the summer.

Follow our Summer Reading Club Facebook Page @SPLSummerReading to see the latest activities and challenges and to share your news with us. If you are not on Facebook contact us at 403-742-2292. We can put you on an email list or find another way to keep you up to date.

1. Sign up:  Registration is now open and the club starts on July 4th!

Register for free, and get ready to explore myths and legends with us! We will add you to the club and you can report on your achievements (both reading and participating in activities) throughout the summer to be entered in our prize draws (more on that below).  Please have an adult help you register online or you can register by email at spl@prl.ab.ca or by telephone at 403-742-2292.

2. Earn entries into weekly and grand prize draws.

This year the time you spend reading will earn you magic beans to enter into the end of summer grand prize draws. We will also be giving away weekly prizes for participation so there are two ways to win! Your name will be entered into the weekly prize draw each time you participate in an activity. 

  • Report your reading online for a chance to win our grand prizes.
  • Come to our programs for a chance to win our weekly draws.
