We’re getting ready for babies!

Yes, it’s that time again….Babytime!!  We’re going to start a new six-week session this Thursday, April 23rd. Registration is open to children aged 0 – 12 months, and the sessions are every Thursday morning at 9:30am.

We’re Getting Ready for Babies again!

baby2015posterIn just a few more weeks, we’ll be welcoming babies back to the library. This is such a fun 6-week session, and just as much about the parents as it is about the babies. Each time, we make new friends, get to laugh and cuddle with new babies, and hopefully, make lifelong library-goers.

If you have a little one aged 0 – 12 months, this is the program for you. Call us to register starting today, and we’ll put you on the list. Babytime starts on Thursday, April 23rd and runs through May 28. We meet for about 20-25 minutes starting at 9:30am, but there is no hurry to leave the library right after the session. Stay, talk with other moms, check out some books….we’re just glad to have you at the library. We sing songs, learn fun tickle rhymes, and everyone will go home with a fun pre-literacy skill or baby life-hack to try out.

Don’t forget to tell any new moms you might know about this great program. This will be the last one until the fall!

Conferencing

storytimereminderWe’re going to be away at the Ontario Library Association Super Conference for a few days, so storytime and babytime are cancelled this week.

Don’t worry, you can still sign up for next week by calling 257-2702. We’ll be excited to get back at it. As usual, however, if the buses are cancelled due to poor weather conditions, we don’t run programs. Please listen to your local radio station for more details, or watch here on Facebook for a post.

See you next week!

We’re Starting Again!

No, I don’t mean we’re starting from scratch. We’re just getting back into our regular programs. It’s going to be a fun year!

storytime2015

First up this week is Storytime. We still have spaces for the 9:30am session, and the 10:15am session, so give us a call right away to save your place.  And as always, if the buses are cancelled, please remember there will be no storytime session that week.

And we’re welcoming babies back on Thursday, January 8th! This is a six-week session only, Thursday mornings at 9:30. Don’t worry, you don’t have to attend all of them (babies are very unpredictable), but try to make it to one at least. You’ll meet other parents, and your babies will have a chance to socialize. Once again, give us a call to register, and watch our Facebook page in case of bad weather adjustments.

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!

You’re Such a Baby!

We’re gearing up for the fall, and that means programs for the youngest members of our community! Yes, Babytime will run from Sept. 11 through Oct. 16th…every Thursday morning at 9:30am.

This is a wonderful program for children aged 0 – 12 months and their parents or caregivers. Come with a coffee, if you like, and join us for songs, rhymes, tickle games and much more!  It’s a wonderful way for parents to bond with baby, and to meet other parents and their children. Many great friendships have been made during babytime at the library, so we hope you’ll plan on attending!

Call us to register today. We’ll give you a quick reminder call in September, and then we’re off to the races!
