The WMRL Summer Reading Program is complete for this year and the final prizes are on the way to anyone who completed the program!
How does the program work?
Since all branches the WMRL are currently closed to the public, we have decided to make our program as simple as possible. Here’s how you participate:
To learn more about the program, please contact your local WMRL branch. Branches are listed here, simply select your branch to view its contact information. Please note that if you are a Brandon resident, you should email firstname.lastname@example.org for information.
How can prizes be collected?
If we are open to the public this summer, then you can stop by your local WMRL branch to collect your prizes. Make sure to bring your notebook so we can see what you’ve read!
If we continue to be closed to the public in accordance to public health orders, then you will have to call or email your local WMRL branch to make arrangements to pick up your prize.
What can you read?
Any book qualifies. This means you can read a novel, a picture book, a graphic novel or comic book, a nonfiction book, eBook, or whatever else you can get your hands on! Here are our eResources and our catalogue to help you get started.
There are no required titles, authors, or themes to be read for this program. For those wanting some inspiration, we have created OPTIONAL weekly themes with a suggested Book List.
Here they are:
Teen & Adult Summer Reading Challenge
Open to all ages, but recommended for those 13+, the WMRL is excited to offer a new Summer Reading Challenge: Bookish Bingo!
