Thank you to everyone who made the TD Summer Reading Club a huge success! We had 1165 members this year, the most we've ever had! Together we read over 7400 books! Way to go everyone! Every book read was a kilometre along the Trans Canada Highway; large maps were on display in all branches so everyone could track our progress and learn interesting facts about our pitstops along the way.

With over 7400 books read by eager club members on our Read Across Challenge, we officially made it all the way from St. John's, Newfoundland to Victoria, British Columbia! ​Acting Mayor and City Councillor for Victoria Geoff Young was proud to to welcome us into his beautiful city in a video message!
