London Public Library - “Get Caught Reading:” Teen Summer Reading Challenge (Ages 11-17)

Reading Creates Strong Roots! 

Just as trees all over our beautiful Forest City receive nourishment to grow through their roots in the ground, the creativity, imagination and reading levels of London children was encouraged by reading books in London Public Library’s TD Summer Reading Club. These neighbourhood boards display the favourite reads of children ages 3 - 12 is a sample of the books read by almost 6000 children in our City.

Each Library will create a piece of foam board, an outline of their area of the city, named, and providing children with trees that they can cut out, write on the name of a book they read this summer, or something about the book and adding to their neighbourhood. Then, when they are on display during the 10 day Fair, it will show all the neighbourhoods of London and what the children there read.  

Western Fair District is pleased to work with London Public Library this summer to support some great programs that encourage art, reading and creativity. Check out the fun activities listed and ask about them at your local London Public Library branch throughout the summer
