Municipal libraries in three Montréal boroughs are winners of the TD Summer Reading Club Library Award.
A first in the history of the TD Summer Reading Club
For the first time since the awards were created in 2007, all three were won by libraries in the same network, or the same city, among both French and English categories. Montréal’s municipal libraries network can be rightfully proud!
First prize : Bibliothèque L’Octogone (arrondissement de LaSalle)
Promoting excellence in summer reading programs
TD Summer Reading Club Library Awards aim to promote excellence in summer reading programs by:
- Showcasing library employees’ creativity in introducing children to the pleasures of reading.
- Encouraging community partnerships that strengthen children’s reading skills.
- Facilitating information sharing among Canadian public libraries so that they can continue to develop exemplary summer reading programs.
The libraries received their awards on June 10 at the “Rendez-vous des bibliothèques” event.
