February is ‘I Love to Read’ Month, and Winnipeg Public Library is ready to help you celebrate!
Early experiences with books and language lay the foundation for success in learning to read. There are lots of fun and easy ways you can help build reading readiness, such as talking, singing, reading, writing and playing with your child. All of these activities help to develop language and literacy skills, and positive interactions with reading and books can ensure that your child sees reading as a fun and enjoyable activity. Winnipeg Public Library has the perfect event to help you encourage your family’s love of literacy!
On Saturday, February 6, all of our twenty branches will be hosting Take Your Child to the Library Day! Join us for scheduled family music concerts with the Winnipeg Folk Festival and puppet shows presented by Castlemoon Theatre, or stop by any time on the day to grab one of our new children’s library cards, make a library card holder and bookmark, and show off your new library card with fun props in our photo booth! Admission to concerts and puppet shows will be by free tickets distributed starting 30 minutes before show time. For details and a full listing of events, check out page 21 of At The Library, available in all branches, or ask staff at your nearest branch.
Children are never too young to have their own library card, which provides a world of discovery and learning. Join Winnipeg Public Library for Take Your Child to the Library Day on Saturday, February 6, to celebrate the joy of literacy and foster a love of reading in your family!
