    Special for the Summer
    TD Summer Reading Club – Splash! Celebrate Summer
    Every summer all 20 Winnipeg Public Library locations host the TD Summer Reading Club.
    Children (up to age 12) register at a library and receive a free activity book, a reading
    log, posters and stickers. Children keep track of how much they read and visit the Library
    for great prizes.
    The Summer Reading Club also has lots of fun programs. This year’s theme is Splash! Cele-
    brate Summer and is sure to be a blast! Registration begins June 27 and the club runs until
    August.

    Read Away Your Fines!
    In July and August children and youth up to age 17 who have not been able to borrow
    Library materials because of unpaid fines or charges are invited to “read away” those
    fines at any branch or mobile site of Winnipeg Public Library.

    Family Literacy Fun Days
    Bring the whole family down to the Library for some guaranteed fun! Pick up a family “pass-
    port” and travel around stations with exciting games and creative activities. Take home
    your beautiful creations and lots of great family memories.
