Library’s Accountable, Collaborate and Transparent Service (ACT) to the community
This report informs the community members about the resources generated and reading development activities as a result of the TD SRC (Summer Reading Club). I would like to thank TD Bank, INDIGO Adopt a School, First Books Canada, Frontier College, IODE, Scholastic, UNESCO, and Prairie Tales for assisting with literacy. Please visit the following pages to view our children, youth and families reading together.
Key outcomes:

4. Relationship development and collaborative resource generation for staff and stakeholders
5. Literacy links and capacity creation as the program was run by volunteers
