September brings a lot of opportunities for learning and the library is a great place to gain new skills and knowledge. Learn to repair items at our monthly Saturday Repair Cafe, take that next step in your writing with our upcoming writers' workshop, or get the facts on Fentanyl and other drugs at our community information workshop. Whatever interests you, the library has the resources and information to springboard you as far as you want to go.

Summer in Review

 

We had a wonderfully busy and successful summer of activities for kids. We offered 32 days of programming, enjoyed by over 450 participants! Many thanks to the facilitators who lent us their expertise, and to TELUS for helping us purchase 8 new chromebooks on which we offered the digital literacy programs.  Stay tuned to this newsletter for more young people’s programs coming up in the fall.

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

Children’s Section Renovation Update

 

We are happy to announce that the new furniture has arrived.  It is colourful and fresh and re-configurable to accommodate different programming needs. New shelving will be installed mid-September which will make it easier for young children to find books independently, and provide more space for older kids to gather and unwind. Please drop by and let us know what you think of the changes. We will host a celebration in October to thank everyone who donated toward the renovation.

 

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

Storytimes

 

With all these changes going on, our Bouncing Babies and Preschool Storytimes will be starting in October this year.  Storytimes are free, weekly, drop-in programs where children and their care-givers can enjoy songs, rhymes, stories, and games together.  Tea and a light snack are also provided.

 

 

Preschool Storytime (for 2-5 year olds and their caregiver); Wednesdays starting Oct. 4; 11 am – 12 noon

 

Bouncing Babies (for 0-2 year olds and their caregiver); Thursdays starting Oct. 5; 10 am – 11 am
