Ottawa – Back in June, we launched our annual TD Summer Reading Club (TDSRC) for kids, and WOW! 18,455 kids have registered so far. Participants have read more than 103,000 books!

No worries if you have not joined the party yet. The summer is far from over, and there is plenty of time left to join the summer reading fun with the TD Summer Reading Club this year at the Ottawa Public Library.

Children can register for the club at any OPL branch or Bookmobile and each participant will receive a special

The OPL also provides children having a print disability with materials in alternative formats, such as audio or Braille.

During the summer, OPL branches across the city offer Canada-themed programming featuring arts and crafts, dance, games, illusions, performing, science, sports, stories, technology, and much more! Details are available on our website: https://biblioottawalibrary.ca/en/program.
