Kids’ reading club now at local libraries

  • Print

The kids may soon be out of the classroom for the next couple of months, but there will be still be a chance to keep their reading skills fresh.

The annual TD Summer Reading Club began at all Winnipeg Public Library branches on June 24 and will run until Aug. 9. Children are invited to drop by any branch and sign up for the club, organizers say. Family members of all ages will also have the opportunity to take part in the programs being offered.

Libraries located in southeast Winnipeg include St. Boniface Library (100-131 Provencher Blvd.), Windsor Park Library (955 Cottonwood Rd.) and St. Vital Library (6 Fermor Ave.)

The club is a national literacy initiative for kids up to age 12. When children sign up, they will receive a free reading kit with an activity booklet, stickers and a log book. They can then keep track of the days they read and collect ballots for prize draws as they progress through their logs. Those too young to read can participate by tracking the days they are read to.

In total, Winnipeg Public Library will offer more than 150 free programs for children, teens and families this summer, which include story, game and craft programs, Lego block parties and family literacy fun days, as well as photo editing and creative writing workshops, and writing for film and video production programs for tweens.
