Storytime

BRING A FRIEND TOWe’re excited to announce that Storytime is starting again in September!  It will be another fun season of stories, songs, rhymes and much more. Your 2-5 year olds will learn pre-literacy skills while having fun and meeting new friends.

Registration begins today, so don’t hesitate to sign up right away. Spaces are limited for each session, and while there are two each week, they usually fill up fast. You don’t have to register a younger child if you are bringing them along….save the spaces for the 2-5 year olds!

As always, parents (or caregivers) are required to stay for the session. Once the cold weather gets here, please listen to the radio or check the school websites for bus cancellations. When buses are cancelled due to snow days, we don’t have storytime, either. There is no need to risk the icy or snowy roads just to hear a story!

Please give us a call at 257-2702 to register for the session you want, or drop by the library today to sign up. We’re looking forward to seeing some familiar faces this fall!

Summer Storytime

Summer StorytimeWe love Storytime at the library….and we know you do, too! It’s been several weeks since our last one, so we’re excited to get going again. But take note….summer storytime runs a little differently.

First up, you can begin to register today for this program. While we usually have two sessions during the year, in summer we only have one and it starts at 10am. Because this is such a popular program, you can imagine that reducing it down to one session will mean that there are limited spaces available. And limited spaces will be easy to fill, so please make sure to register for the FIRST SESSION right away.

Signing up for one session does not mean you’ll be registered for the entire summer, however. Please make sure you sign up each week. If we are full and you come to storytime that morning, you will be able to stay and take out books, but your child will be super disappointed. Don’t let them be disappointed in you, parents! Make sure to register each week!

New Programs at the Library!

Starting in January, we have a whole host of new programs on the schedule. There are book clubs, craft nights, workshops, and much more. You can drop in right now to pick up the 2016 Winter Newsletter for adults and teens, and take the new children’s Newsletter at the same time. There’s something for everyone!

20151209_161258You’ll notice we have the regular storytime beginning again. This session, we’ll also have Toddlers, and a little later on, babies again! Our French storytime session will start up on Fridays again, and we’ll have things to keep the kids entertained on PA days all winter long.

If you’re wondering about March Break, you’ll have to wait a few weeks, but we’ll let everyone know when we have that special schedule out. And if you have young crafters, make note of the registration dates for Valentine’s Craft Night, and Spring Craft Night. These fill up fast, and they are always popular! We’ve already started Forest of Reading®, so register early and begin reading right away!

20151209_161247Our adult and teen programs are even more exciting for 2016!

Starting with teens, we’ll begin our Nerd Herd Teen Book Club again in January, and run it through May. We’re also gearing up to celebrate Rock the Drop again in April for Teen Literature Day….and keep a lookout for a few special new programs for teens a little later on.

For adults, we’re starting up the VERY popular tech training again, as well as our adult book club. But if you’d rather take part in a different type of book club, we have one to bridge the generation gap! (It’s a lot of fun, and it gets everyone involved.)

If adult colouring is more your thing, we’ve got plenty of great colouring pages ready for winter. See all of the details above, or drop in to pick up your own copy (it’s super clear, and has a lot more detail).

20151209_161240The BIG fun happens with our workshops this winter. We’ve got creativity fun, social media info, and money workshops for women. We’re also excited about a special astronomy talk with Frank Hitchens in January that you won’t want to miss!

If you want to know more about any of these great programs, drop by the library, take a gander at our online catalog (http://olco.canlib.ca/client/cp), or give us a call at 257-2702. It’s going to be an exciting winter….even if we don’t get any snow!

The Stories are Over.

storytime1We’re finishing up a lot of our fall programs this week and next, including storytime. This is such a favourite of our patrons, and I know it will be tricky getting the little ones out of the schedule, but we hope everyone will continue to visit the library during December to take out books and DVDs.

Our new Winter program schedule will go out in a week or so at the front desk. We’re busy planning a variety of amazing things for our patrons for 2016, so keep watching here and on our Facebook page for all of the details.

Our next storytime session will start on January 13th, and registration will begin on December 15th. Please call early to register for the space you would like, either at 9:30am, or 10:15am. We always have a fun morning!

See you in 2016!

Storytime at the Library!

After a successful summer at the library, we’re getting back into a regular schedule, and that means storytime! Once again, we’re running two sessions back-to-back on Wednesday mornings.

violetWe’re starting to take registration for the programs now. You can call us to sign up, or drop by the library to reserve a space in either the 9:30am, or 10:15am programs. Storytime will run from Sept., 16th to November 25th.

Storytime consists of stories, songs, rhymes and more for children aged 2-5 years old. Please feel free to bring along your younger children as well, so that your storytime-aged child can enjoy the session. We’re used to an active session!

This usually fills up fast, so don’t hesitate….register now to reserve a space in the session you prefer!
