Windsor Public Library again has a fantastic program of summer activities planned for area children. The 2015 theme is LET’S PLAY with all of the fun officially kicking-off on Wednesday, July 8 at 1 p.m. at Central Library (850 Ouellette Avenue).
The kickoff will include a performance from Mad Science as well as various activities taking place throughout the system, relating to the theme of Play. This summer, all library locations will be offering games, crafts, reading challenges and movie screenings.
“Each year, thousands of excited Windsor children participate in WPL Summer Programs, which are designed to hold off the summer slide,” says WPL CEO Kitty Pope. “Kids are encouraged to read lots of great books, play lots of great games and have lots of fun…all at the library.”
She also reminds parents and children to drop in to any neighbourhood Windsor Public Library location and pick up a free TD Summer Reading Club kit which contains stickers and an activity book. This reading club inspires children to keep reading all summer long, through regular visits to their public libraries. Last year approximately 5,000 area children participated in our summer programs.
Exciting activities this summer include a Harry Potter Party, Comic Book Day, Robot Sumo, a presentation by Mad Science, our Teen Reading Program, a Stuffed Animal Sleepover, building Crafty Minecraft Crafts, and our annual science fair: Playing With Science.
