TD Summer Reading Club Logo

The TD Summer Reading Club 2019 is finished for the season. Sally Swan, coordinator of the Wakefield Summer Reading Club, wishes to thank all of the participants, helpers and parents, grandparents and babysitters for attending this fabulous and fun program, which promotes reading through a variety of activities. For a copy of Reading Club photos and a Certificate of Participation for each child, please email Sally at riverswansong@gmail.com

“We had a grand time celebrating nature. Our final session was based on one of my own favourite books called OLD TURTLE with beautiful illustrations and a classic message for all ages. Many thanks to our ‘celebrity’ guests: Jo Rioux – author/illustrator of The Cat’s Cradle, CJ Fleury – artist par excellence, Wanda Wommin – mistress of all things magic, and Gwen Smid – author of T-Rex Girl. You were all absolutely captivating! 

Special thanks to Amy Carver and her library team for their unending support and guidance throughout the summer. Certificate of Recognition for helpers – Lauryn, Abby, Jordan, Brittany, Rouge and Claire.

Happy Reading, Everyone!

What an astonishing thing a book is. It’s a flat object made from a tree with flexible parts on which are imprinted lots of funny dark squiggles. But one glance at it and you’re inside the mind of another person, maybe somebody dead for thousands of years. Across the millennia, an author is speaking clearly and silently inside your head, directly to you. Writing is perhaps the greatest of human inventions, binding together people who never knew each other, citizens of distant epochs. Books break the shackles of time. A book is proof that humans are capable of working magic.”

Cosmos, Part 11: The Persistence of Memory (1980)” Carl Sagan
