2012 TD Summer Reading Club Library Awards!

The deadline is coming up - November 1st 2012!

Did you do something extraordinary for your TD Summer Reading Club this year?  Well, don’t be modest! Share your story by applying for a 2012 Library Award.  The awards are designed to celebrate innovative and effective TD Summer Reading Club programs in public libraries throughout Canada. 

TDSRC has also provided us with “Tips from the Jury” outlining some key pointers from previous successful applicants. 

Here are a few of their tips:
  • Provide clear evidence of your program’s focus on “changes/improvement in children’s literacy and reading habits” – this is a good chance to include a “patron impact story” from your program.
  • Indicate how your library promoted materials of various genres, at different reading levels, and geared towards participant’s interests and experiences.
  • Outline creative techniques used to engage children in the TD Summer Reading Club.
  • Keep your essential points clear! Jurors may have to quickly scan an application and will want to see the most important and valuable information right away.

If you have any questions about applying for a Library Award please contact your 2012 TDSRC Provincial Coordinator.

Good Luck!
