French Resources and Books

Do you or your children use our French resources, or take out French books from the library? We find that some people know what we have available at the library…and some people don’t. To make matters a little easier, we’ve got some fresh new brochures that will explain exactly what we offer, how to order something we don’t have, and what you can find online.

Feel free to download one of the brochures, or stop in to pick one up. We have tons of great books, homework help resources online, and even a weekly French Storytime on Saturdays at 1pm…all ages welcome!

Une Heure de Conte en Francais

We’re changing things up a little!  Une Heure de Conte en Francais is moving to Saturdays at 1pm! Join us for a fun half hour French Storytime for young ones with some French vocabulary. There is no age limit, and no registration is required. Just stop in at the library at 1pm on Saturdays for some French stories, songs, and more!

Starting January 26th!

Une Heure de Conte en Francais

Bonjour mes amis!

We’re starting French Storytime for the fall season today. Drop in for 10:30am to enjoy French songs, stories and more….all without registration. It’s a great session for all ages, aimed mainly at children who have very little French experience (but you never know…we’ve been surprised some days to have children who are very fluent in French join us, and it’s become extra fun!)

There is no registration, so we’ll see you at 10:30!

Happy Labour Day!

We might be closed, but that doesn’t mean you can’t find out what’s going on this fall at the library! Check out our latest Fall calendar for kids, and the one for teens and adults. We have plenty of great things coming up—most require registration, so please make note of the dates to start signing up, as things will fill up quickly!

Do you Parle Francais?

If you’ve been to one of our French Storytime sessions lately, you’ll know that we have a big population of families who want their children to grow up hearing and speaking French. Often, they have no place to go for this outside of home until they go off to school. But we offer a weekly storytime session called “Une Heure de Conte en Francais” on Friday mornings at 10:30am for all ages.

No registration is necessary…just drop in for some stories, a few songs, and lots of laughs (maybe even a little yoga, if our favourite little yoga instructor shows up). This week is our last March session, and since next week is Good Friday, the library will be closed, so no French storytime that day. However, we’ll be back at it in April and go through the end of the month, before taking a quick break to plan for summer.

Hope to see you and your little ones today!
