Every summer, the NFB offers a selection of films to libraries participating in the TD Summer Reading Club. Led by the Toronto Public Library in partnership with Library and Archives Canada, and generously sponsored by the TD Bank Group, the TD Summer Reading Club is Canada’s biggest, bilingual summer reading program for kids of all ages, all interests, and all abilities, delivered by more than 2,000 public libraries across Canada.
Participants explore recommended reads; track their own reading; connect and share with others across the country; read books online; join in activities; collect reading incentives; write jokes, stories, book reviews, and more.

How do I organize a virtual or in-person screening?
STEP 1. Choose the film(s) that you would like to show from the TD Summer Reading Club program. The program can be viewed here.
STEP 2. Send your selections by e-mail to Florence François and include the date, time (or indicate if the film will be available to patrons all summer), and location of the screening, as well as the film format required for your venue. We can supply an electronic file (.mp4 or .mov) or ship a physical copy (projection-quality DVD or Blu-ray) for screenings in your library. For virtual screenings, we can provide a hyperlink.
STEP 3. Organize your advertising for the event—promote the screening(s) in your networks.
STEP 4. Prior to your event, use your screening equipment to test the film format delivered to you (digitally or by mail).
STEP 5. Please make note of the number of people who attend each library or virtual screening. This assists us in tracking the outreach of NFB films. You may estimate the number if you can’t give us an exact figure.
