A friendly competition is going on at two branches of the Ottawa Public Library: the Richmond Branch and the North Gower Branch are vying to see which community’s children can read more books.
The results to date:
North Gower: 576
It’s all part of the TD Kids’ Summer Reading Club, which also features weekly programs. To register, go to http://www.biblioottawa.ca then click on LOCATIONS, and choose the branch of your choice.
Karen Craig, who supervises both branches says the competition is all in good fun, and “when kids read, everyone wins.”
