At the Rendez-vous des bibliothèques du Québec [Quebec public libraries event] on May 2, the Ville de Saint-Lambert proudly took third place in the TD Summer Reading Club Library Awards for its 2023 edition.

The award, presented by Library and Archives Canada along with a $2,000 bursary, will allow the library to enhance its youth services. Since 2007, the TD Summer Reading Club Library Awards have recognized and rewarded the most innovative and effective TD Summer Reading Club programs in local libraries across Canada to promote summer reading among children.

For its 2023 edition, the Saint-Lambert library was recognized by the jury for the original way it presented and highlighted the Club's theme. “Every year, our team reinvents itself to offer participants fun, creative and educational activities that will transmit to them the pleasure of reading and learning. This distinction reflects our library's efforts to promote access to knowledge and culture for children,” said Elizabeth Jacques, Head of the Library Division.

The team creatively exploited all the technological and human resources available to offer children a range of activities that fostered learning, vocabulary enrichment, intellectual curiosity and scientific discovery. Over a ten-week period, children participating in the Club were able to take part in some fifteen activities held both inside and outside the library: special guests, exhibitions, story times, cabinet of curiosities, story trail, etc.

The City of Saint-Lambert would like to congratulate the entire library team on this well-deserved recognition.
