Take Your Child to the Library Days are back at Winnipeg Public Library this February.

This year, each library branch will have free family friendly programs, activities, and musical performances running in the evenings and every Saturday in February.

“We encourage families to visit a Winnipeg Public Library branch throughout the month to take part in the fun activities we have planned throughout February to celebrate I Love to Read Month,” said Amber Lamboo, Administrative Coordinator of Youth Services.

Activities vary by branch and range from Reading with Raptors, where children can participate in a storytime with an owl, falcon or other wild animal, to musical performances by Aaron Burnett.

A French performance by TiBert et Douzie will also be available at Bibliotheque de Saint Boniface.

“We are offering registered and drop-in programming throughout the month, and encourage families to check the schedule online.”

Children can also visit a branch to get their very own kid’s library card and discover new books.

In addition to the special month-long programming, families can visit any branch across Winnipeg during the day for a variety of free children’s programming including a new session of Winter Early Literacy Programming, Family Book Clubs, and other storytimes.

A full list of programing can be found on the Winnipeg Public Library’ website and the current issue of What’s On.
