CPL: The Only Card You Need!

Submitted to Just Sayin' Caledon


Summertime fun is here! Whether it be spending time with family and friends, going to the cottage, or just relaxing in your backyard BBQing, the only card you need this summer is your library card!

Guitars, Life Jackets, Park Passes, Ozobots & More!
Sure, you knew you could borrow books, but are you aware of our Special Collections? You can borrow guitars to strum your favourite songs on, life jackets/personal floatation devices (pfd) to use on your next visit to the lake, park passes and binoculars to enjoy during a family hike, hotspots to provide internet access to Wi-Fi wherever you are, nature backpacks to explore the great outdoors, board games and ozobots to entertain the kids on rainy days, and so much more – all with your library card!

Virtual Summer Reading Clubs
Complete a variety of fun tasks during the Adult Summer Reading Challenge (ASRC), running until August 29, with chances to win a gift card from a local business each week. Challenges and businesses involved with ASRC can be found on our website or on our Facebook and Twitter channels. Not sure what to read this summer? Check out our Reasons2Read blog for reader’s advisories and share your own thoughts on the books.

While you’re completing your weekly reading challenges, kids and teens can enjoy our annual TD Summer Reading Club. Children ages birth – 12 and teens, 13-17, can record the books or minutes spent reading online to be entered in CPL’s draws for amazing prizes.

Digital Resources Wherever You Are
While at home or travelling, you can access a variety of eBooks, eAudiobooks, digital magazines and newspapers, streaming platforms and research tools for free with your library card!

Backyard movie night? No problem; use Kanopy or Hoopla to stream various films. Going to the cottage? Use Overdrive to access thousands of eBook and eAudiobook titles to enjoy reading by the water. Want to learn something new this summer? Join a course on LinkedIn Learning. Feeling crafty? Creativebug offers online video arts and crafts workshops and techniques. There are so many options; check out the list of other fabulous digital resources the entire family can use on our website.

Virtual Programs
CPL has an incredible line-up for you and the kids this summer—all you need is an internet connection! Join us for exciting programs including special presentations from Toronto Zoo, Reptilia, Victoria Bug Zoo, and the Royal Botanical Gardens.

Teens can enjoy Teen Café, a series of fun activities run by local teens. Register for Art Night, Jackbox Party, Murder Mystery Night and more!

Adults can relax and enjoy Olympics’ Virtual Trivia Night, Cycling Caledon with Wayne Noble and other great programs.
