Summer Reading Week 1: Blast off!

Summer Reading Week 1: Blast off!

It’s the first official week of the TD Summer Reading Program—hooray! We are so excited to be visiting all the incredible Huron County Library Branches and cannot wait to read some exciting stories with all of you who are joining us this summer!  

This week we met lots of new friends who we will see all summer, so what better theme to kick things off with than “Blast off!” While we enjoyed meeting our new friends, we will also had fun learning about everything in our solar system! Did you know there are eight planets, five dwarf planets, one star, and (at least) 299 moons in our solar system? That’s a busy party!  

Together we learned about how the summer reading club works, how to use your book log, how to win prizes, and how to make your nametag! We also read a book together, called, XO, Exoplanet by Deborah Underwood, and decorated our giant reading rocket ship in the library (we can’t wait till you see this, it’s super cool!). 

For those who are unable to come to our first week, we still have cool things in store for you! You can print off a very cool colouring sheet at home or at your local library branch. We also encourage you to go to your local library this week and check out some great books to begin your summer reading adventures! For story suggestions based on this week’s theme, check out our online reading list for week 1!    

We have liftoff!
