TD Summer Reading Club Invites Island Youth to Become Amateur Detectives

Communities, Cultural Affairs and Labour

Island youth will have the opportunity to play sleuth as part of the exciting activities taking place during the TD Summer Reading Club at public libraries throughout Prince Edward Island this summer.

“Agent 009” is the title of this year’s detective-themed program. Agent 009 may be a super sleuth, secret agent, investigator, inspector or private detective who can appear in detective novels, mystery fictions, whodunits, thrillers, horror stories and suspense novels.

“Our public library staff are developing a wide range of exciting and fun activities using the Agent 009 theme,” said Carolyn Bertram, Minister of Communities, Cultural Affairs and Labour. “ The TD Summer Reading Club is a great way for children to improve their reading skills in an environment that’s both educational and entertaining.”

The goals of the TD Summer Reading Club are to encourage children to read for pleasure, to help youth maintain and improve their reading skills during the summer, and foster a lifelong joy of reading. Children 12 and under, can register with their local library for the TD Summer Reading Club and will receive a poster, stickers and an activity book as a part of their reading kit.

The public is invited to the provincial launch of the summer program at the Kensington Public Library on Tuesday, June 16, 2009 at 10 a.m.

More information, including hours of operation, for any of the 26 public libraries can be found online at
