It was a whirlwind weekend, but we’re back from Winnipeg! This summer’s theme is GO!, so it couldn’t have been more appropriate to get up and GO! to Winnipeg on a journey!
At the Ottawa Airport early, early, early. It was sunny, sweltering and busy. Arriving in Winnipeg, it was freezing, raining and quiet. Quite a change!
There were plenty of things going on at the Canadian Library Conference. Exhibits, workshops and more.
The closing ceremonies were about to begin. We had front row seats for the TD Summer Reading Club Awards.
Our seat markers.
Representatives from Library and Archives Canada & the TD Bank talked about how important summer reading at the library is for children.
The two giant screens displayed a slideshow of the winning libraries’ best shots from the summer of 2012. This was our giant reading wall on display for the beginning of the award ceremony.
The stats for last summer.
Our award announcement. Yay!
Accepting the award was exciting and nerve-wracking!
Congratulations to the Queen’s Square Branch of the Cambridge Public Library!
Honorable mention winners.
Our special plaque. We’re so thrilled to be recognized!
We’ll have lots of news about the upcoming summer theme, but for now, this is our first taste of GO! We’re excited to get started!
