Young Writers

We’ve had such a great time over the last five weeks running a Young Writers group every Sunday afternoon. We had snacks, did some fun writing exercises and made a lot of new friends.  Next week, I’ll try to post a few excerpts from the wonderful stories they wrote this month. I think you’ll be surprised!

Don’t worry…if your budding writer didn’t get a chance to attend, we’ll have more like this in the coming months. Keep watching our Facebook page, or posters at the library for more information. We love our young writers!

And his name is….

ShelfelfStarting December 1st, our new friend Cocoa will be taking up his post as our Elf on the Library Shelf!  He’ll be camping out in a new spot each day, so make sure you visit the library to see what he’s been up to each night. Don’t worry, if you can’t make it in, we’ll be sure to post a photo on our Facebook page to keep you in the loop. He’s promised to be good, but we’ve heard these busy friends can get up to some mischief.

Welcome, Cocoa!

Farewell to the Kiddos!

We’ve had a great fall session, but storytime, babytime and toddler time are finishing up for the end of the year. This week, we’ll have the last storytime and toddler time meet-ups, and then we’ll take a break until 2015.

If you have been attending on a regular basis, we’ll make an announcement when you’re here this week regarding registration for 2015. If you can’t make it, please watch this space, as well as the library Facebook page for more information. For most of it, we’ll start registering in early December.

It’s been a wonderful fall, and we can’t wait to see all of our favourite faces in the new year!

Christmas Craft Night at the Library

This is always a busy time of year, so we like to get our young ones into the library to make all sorts of fun crafts for the holidays. Next week, we’re having our annual Christmas Craft Night for kids aged 6 – 11. There will be crafts, treats, and games. What more could anyone ask for?

  Registration is full now, so we can’t accept any more crafters, but don’t worry….there will be plenty more craft nights in the New Year! Watch for our 2015 newsletter going out in December to keep up on everything that’s happening at the library!

Elf on the Library Shelf

Yes, we’re lucky enough to have an Elf on the Library Shelf this year!  But he needs a name before he’ll begin his duties. Starting today, you can drop by the library to fill out your name idea. And then keep your eyes on our Facebook page for crazy fun in December!

It’s a Spooooooky Day!

While we don’t have any special events going on today for Halloween, we wish all of our young trick-or-treaters a happy and safe Halloween night!
