TD Summer Reading Club - Join the fun!

Our Sherbrooke, Petit de Grat, and Margaree Forks locations are taking part in TD Summer Reading Club this year.

TD Summer Reading Club

This includes reading recommendations and free activities for all kids, all summer long! Participate anytime, anywhere – at the library, at home, online, or wherever your summer takes you.

This summer, we invite you to unplug and take a moment to explore the stories and science of nature through adventure and play—to marvel at a growing seed, be awed by extreme weather, and wonder about our connection to each other and the earth that sustains us.
