On March 25, the TD Bank Group, Hwy 2 & Westney Road branch, presented the Library with a $4,500 donation to be used toward the Regional Battle of the Books program.
“With the generous support of TD, we can maintain the Battle of the Books program at current levels,” said Cindy Kimber, Coordinator of Branch Services for the Ajax Public Library and one of the Battle of the Books organizers. “The program is important because it keeps kids excited and interested in reading, and we are grateful the bank sees the value in that.”
TD has been a long-time supporter of Battle of the Books, providing sponsorship for the majority of the program's 24 years running.
