Halloween at the Library!

spookyThis weekend, we’re taking part in a little town fun, and having our own Halloween event at the library!

Join us on Saturday, October 29, anywhere from 10am – 5pm for a fun Halloween Lego challenge, take part in a spooky “I Spy”, and enjoy a bit of candy on us! It’s going to be a lot of fun, so make sure to drop in to say BOO!

There is no registration for these events…drop in for 5 minutes, or stay for a few hours. It’s going to be spooktacular!

A Long Weekend + Lego!

shopJust a reminder that the library will be closed on Monday, October 10th for Thanksgiving. Drop in anytime today or tomorrow to renew your items, pick up something new, or use the WiFi and printer.

You won’t be charged any fines for the days we’re not open, and you can return all of your items to the blue box that sits near the front door of the library. We’ll be open at our regular time on Tuesday, Oct. 11th at 1:30pm.

And just in case you’re one of the lucky ones to have children off on a PA Day today, don’t forget, we have a Lego Drop In today from 1-3pm. Come for the whole time, or just stay for a few minutes. It’s a fun way to pass the afternoon!

Happy long weekend, everyone!

Halloween Craft Night

exhibitionWe’re gearing up for Halloween Craft Night at the library on Tuesday, October 25, from 6-7pm . It’ll be a fun evening for kids who like to craft…and get a little spooky.

Registration begins today, so if you have a child aged 6 – 11 who would like to attend, please give us a call, or drop by the library to sign up today. Hurry, this will fill up fast!

And if they’d like to wear a costume, we’ll be extra happy!

Costumes, anyone?

COSTUME EXCHANGE(1)We’re trying something fun…and environmentally friendly!  A Halloween Costume Exchange!

Drop off your gently used child’s halloween costume during the last week of September, and we’ll organize them and put them out on Wednesday, October 12 for you to take! While we can’t guarantee that we’ll have one for everybody, we’re hoping this might become a community tradition. Recycling at its best!

We only wish the whole thing involved candy.

Only Three Photos, Please.

Recently, the CBC Radio Program “Q” had an episode regarding those endless vacation photos people always post on their social media sites. While for some people, it’s a way to keep their collection of photos in one place so that they can look back on them five years from now and reminisce. But for those of us who are logging in to check our Facebook or Instagram feeds for five minutes, getting sucked into mediocre or over-filtered photos that go on and on, can be annoying.

Henry Alford, author of  WOULD IT KILL YOU TO STOP DOING THAT? : A MODERN GUIDE TO MANNERS, says that to stay within proper social etiquette and not annoy your friends and followers, you should only post a MAXIMUM of three vacation photos, stay away from those filters, and don’t try too hard to make your life appear “special”.

killIf you’d like to know a little more about this radio program, and hear more from Alford, you can drop by the episode entitled “How Not to be a Jerk About Sharing Vacation Photos”. And then get to your Facebook page and edit!!!
