Join the Club! TD Summer Reading Club
TD Summer Reading Club logo. Reading fun for kids, from Canada's public libraries.

This summer, Chatham-Kent Public Library invites you to trek through the wilderness, real or imaged. Kids can sign up for TD Summer Reading Club beginning Saturday, June 22, and participate all summer long. Through books, programs, and conversations, TD Summer Reading Club kids will explore their own backyards and the world beyond, and will be amazed by the natural world and the role it plays in their imaginations and daily lives.
