Regina Riot Walking Tour – Thursday, July 1st

Most of us take for granted the basic necessities provided to us in our place of employment: a fair wage, personal safety. These were just a few of the things the “On To Ottawa Trekkers” were demanding the federal government provide them in their work environments back in 1935. The group of nearly 2,000 trekkers were stopped in Regina on their way to Ottawa. A Dominion Day public meeting in the Market Square is where the riot broke out.

July 1st, 2010 marks the 75th Anniversary of the Regina Riot. There will be a Walking Tour held 11:00 am-12 noon starting at the Police Station, 1717 Osler Street, down 11th Avenue to Scarth Street.

Summer Reading Starts June 14th!

Reading is a great way to expand your vocabulary, learn something new or just relax and escape for a while.  

The Regina Public Library has an exciting summer program with great incentives to get kids reading – plus there is a little something for the adults too!

These free programs are open to Regina resident’s and run from June 14 to August 31, 2010:


Join the TD Summer Reading club for a chance to win great prizes and to 

participate in fun, free programs from movies and puppet shows to  storytelling and performers.  

Pick up a Destination Jungle Reading kit from any of the RPL locations to get started or call 

777-6030 for more information. 

FOR TEENS (ages 12-18)

Tell the RPL the title of a book you’ve read and be entered to win a $25.00 gift certificate to the Cornwall Centre. 

 All RPL locations will be holding regular draws and the more you read the more you can enter! 

 There are also Grand Prizes draws in September which include four $100.00 Best Buy gift certificates.


Tell the RPL, the title of a great book you’ve read and be entered to win a $50.00 gift certificate from Book & Brier Patch.
