The pages are turning in Milton as Canada’s largest summer reading program got started this past weekend.

The Milton Public Library kicked off the 2022 TD Summer Reading Club with a carnival-themed event Saturday (June 25th) at the library’s main location on 1010 Main St. E.

Milton is just one of 2000 libraries across the country who take part in the reading program which aims at helping increase youth literacy.

The club is free and is open to children of all ages. Festivities, which last throughout the summer, will include fun activities, carnival games and even a tour of Milton Transit Bus.

This summer’s TD Summer Reading Club theme is “Once Upon A Time: Myths and Legends.

“This summer list is a mix of classic and modern titles that will take readers on fantastic trips to incredible words,” the Milton library said Monday on Twitter.

Titles include The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and The Little Prince to Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone and Jack and the Beanstalk.


The bilingual summer reading program celebrates Canadian authors, illustrators and stories, and inspires kids to explore the fun of reading their way.

This is key to building a lifelong love of reading.

Stats provide by the TD Summer Reading Club show that of the over eight million children who have attended programs and activities, 96 per cent of the children increased or maintained their enjoyment of reading.

Children receive a free notebook and stickers to track their reading. Teaching tools are provided for everyone, including kids with print disabilities, preschoolers and their families.
