Summer Reading Club

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!

This year our club will operate a little differently from previous years due to our need for physical distancing. We are planning to have lots of fun anyway in the form of weekly challenges and lots of fun activities you can do together as families. Later in the summer, if things go well, we will plan a few events that we can do together outside, safely.  

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 Monday, June 15th in Stettler!

Register for free, and get your game on! 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 we will show your progress in comparison to other readers in the form of a horse race. You can name your horse after yourself or pick a different name for your horse.The more time you spend reading, the faster your horse will move down the track. At the end of the summer, readers with the winning horses in each category (ages 5-7, 8-10 and 11+) will win a cool prize. Starting June 15th, record your reading using our online form or call us at 403-742-2292.

We will also have weekly prize draws for participation in activities and challenges over the course of the summer.  Each time you participate, your name will be entered into the weekly prize draw and the grand prize draw. Report your participation by:

  • Tag us in your social media doing the activity or challenge
  • Comment under the activity on Facebook @SPLSummerReading
  • Call the library at 403-742-2292 and tell us about your participation
  • Report your reading online.
