For more than 20 years, TD Bank Group has generously supported Toronto Public Library programs, services, collections and community spaces.
We would like to say an extra-special thank you to TD Bank Group for the $10 million they have donated to the Toronto Public Library Foundation since 1996. Almost 3 million children at 2,112 libraries across Canada have experienced the joy of reading and the worlds that reading opens, through the TD Summer Reading Club.
TD also supports TPL Teen Summer Edition; the TD Gallery at the Toronto Reference Library; programming for Aboriginal History Month, Black History Month and Asian Heritage Month; and nearly a dozen other initiatives.
With the renewal of their support to the TD Summer Reading Club in the form of $2,600,000 for 2015-2017, TD Bank Group will exceed a cumulative $10 million in donations to Toronto Public Library.
“TD is committed to advancing children’s literacy through programs like the TD Summer Reading Club that encourage children to develop a passion for reading,” said Frank McKenna, deputy chair, TD Bank Group. “We believe that public libraries are vital community-building institutions and we are proud to partner with Toronto Public Library to offer reading programs for young Canadians.”
