Home Schooling and the Winnipeg Public Library

Posted on | June 16, 2014 | No Comments


MASH representatives met with the Winnipeg Public Library last Monday to discuss how we could assist each other in creating a stronger partnership between home schooling families and the Winnipeg library system. The Winnipeg Public Library believes that “learning is for life” and they feel that this is especially relevant to those of us who take on the challenge of educating our children at home. The city library is a wonderful source of information and programming for home schooling families and MASH will try to keep you up to date on the these offerings.

Summer Programming
Visit the WPL webpage for a full listing of events or visit their calendar to see all the events by date.

To highlight just a few of the 165 programs the library will offer this summer:

Summer Reading Programs for Children
We handed out kits at the picnic for preschoolers and school-age children (for both anglophones and francophones). If you missed those, visit your local branch. The reading theme this year is on Maker Space. Visit the TD Summer Reading website for additional resources. And check-out their kick-off event on June 28.

Summer Reading Program for Teens
The teen reading club is run entirely online. Check out their website to signup and enter to win an Ipod Nano.
