Storytime is Back!

For those of you with young ones at home, we know you’ve been itching to get back to Storytime at the library. After a nice little break, we’re ready to begin again!

Join us each Wednesday morning at 10am for a half hour of stories, songs, and lots of fun. And, of course, there will be plenty of time afterwards to look for books and movies.

Registration is required because spaces will be really limited with only one session during the summer. Make sure to call early to get your young one on the list, and register EACH WEEK for the next session. We want to give everyone a chance to attend.

We’re starting now. All you need to do is pick up your Goodies for Grown Ups kit at the front desk. Each kits has fun things to get you started, and make your summer reading count.

You don’t have to read specific books or some to the library on a specific day…..this is reading at your own pace, and for your own enjoyment!

On your next visit, let us know you’re taking part, and we’ll give you a fun shot at winning a prize.  We’ll make our draws at the end of July, and one at the end of August for fun prizes to be announced soon! The more you visit the library, the more chances you’ll have to win.

If you have any questions, please drop by the library or give us a call. We’re looking forward to getting everyone reading this summer!

Lemonade, anyone?

20150525_111619We’re getting ready for the annual Library Lemonade Stand Summer Reading Kick-Off event! Whew!  That’s a mouthful, but it’s always a lot of fun. It’s a great way for kids to get to know what the program is all about, and have some lemonade, too.

Join us on Thursday, July 2nd on the front steps of the library from 1-3pm. We’ll have two kinds of lemonade, we’ll hand out our summer calendar, and give out invitations for the TD Summer Reading Club of 2015.

If your young reader has never done this program before, we’ll answer all of your questions. And if they have, they’ll be eager to pick up the calendar and get going to start earning STUFF. Yes, there is stuff!

Rain or shine, we’ll be on the front library steps. Save a little of that Canada Day celebration attitude for July 2nd……we’re going to have some FUN!

Teen Book Club

The Owl KeeperThe Nerd Herd has been reading Christine Brodien-Jones’ THE OWL KEEPER in June, and we’re getting ready to meet to discuss it.

Normally, we meet the last Wednesday of each month, but due to some holiday scheduling, this month we’re getting together on TUESDAY, June 30th from 4-5:30pm.If you have a teen who has read this and would like to come to the meeting, just come by the library at that time. We’re always happy to see new faces!

THE OWL KEEPER has been a fun read with a little bit of adventure, a futuristic/dystopian society, and poison…..lots of poison.

Have you read it?  What did you think?
