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 2020/21. 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 with a warm up the week of June 28 before we kick-off on July 5th!

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 the time you spend reading will earn you tickets 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! Each time you participate in an activity in person or online, your name will be entered into the weekly prize draw. Report your participation and reading by:

  • Tag us in your social media doing the activity or challenge
  • @SPLSummerReading Comment under the activity on Facebook
  • Tell us, either in person, on the phone 403-742-2292 or by email at spl@prl.ab.ca.
  • Report your reading online.

Rules and Regulations

Prize details:

Prizes must be accepted as awarded. The prizes are not transferable and there are no substitutions (in cash or otherwise). The Library reserves the right to substitute a prize of equal or greater value in the event of unavailability.

Prize entry (reading): 

Each age group is awarded 1 ticket for each unit of reading they complete. Units of reading differ for each age group. 

  • Ages 5-7 earn one ticket for every 30 minutes spent reading.
  • Ages 8-10 earn one ticket for every 60 minutes spent reading.
  • Ages 11+ earn one ticket for every 90 minutes spent reading.

There are 3 levels of prize this year, to celebrate the summer Olympics (if they happen): Bronze, Silver and Gold. 

  • All age groups will need 2 tickets to enter to win a bronze level prize.
  • All age groups will need 4 tickets to enter to win a silver level prize.
  • All age groups will need 6 tickets to enter to win a gold level prize.

We will draw the gold prize winners first and enter non-winning tickets into the silver and bronze level prize draws within the same age group. Report your reading online, by phone 403-742-2292, by email to spl@prl.ab.ca or in person when you visit.
