Do you want to win an iPod Touch or a gift card to the Future Shop?

Get a Clue!
Teen Reading Programme
June 29 – August 22

This summer teens can get a clue about all the fun we are going to have at the Oshawa Public Libraries Teen Reading Programme. Just drop by any of our 4 branches between June 29 and August 22 for your game card, or register at the Oshawa Public Libraries Booth at Lakeview Park on July 1. Check out books, CDs, magazines, DVDs, and video games for game points. Gather more points by stopping by some of our awesome programmes, or by writing a review of your favourite book, movie, or music CD. You’ll get some great gifts along the way and have a chance to win an iPod Touch, tickets to Canada’s Wonderland, and more each time you complete a game card. Stop by any branch for more details on how you can join up and get a clue all summer long. See for more information.
