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!

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.


And don’t forget, while you’re here, sign everyone up for the TD Summer Reading Club! They can earn stickers, and ballots for fun prizes. See you tomorrow!

Une Heure de Conte en Francais!

French Storytime SummerIt’s going to be a fun summer, and we’re excited to announce our weekly storytime, en Francais. “Une Heure de Conte en Francais” will begin on Friday, July 10th, and run through to Friday, August 14th. Each session will begin at 10:30am, and we’ll read stories, sing songs, and do a simple craft. There will be plenty of time for everyone to choose books to take home, too!

No registration required, so mark Fridays on your calendar for the summer.

Une Heure de Conte

There is only one more in June before we begin our summer schedule, so don’t miss out!

Storytime…en francais.

If you attended our French Storytime during the March Break, you got to know our wonderful friend Agathe. And guess what? She’s coming back for more!

Frenchstorytime1We’re looking forward to offering French Storytime for ages 2 and up once per month….at least until the summer. Join us on the following dates for songs, stories and a quick craft!

Monday, April 13th   10:30am

Monday, May 11   10:30am

Monday, June 8    10:30am

It’s going to be a lot of fun. Please call or drop in to register. And while we know that a lot of people are interested in a later storytime for older kids, we’ll see if we can’t meet everyone’s needs during the summer months.

French Storytime!

storytimefrancaisLast week, we posted a notice to parents who might be interested in joining us for a French Storytime at the library. The response was amazing! Not only did we find a very generous community member who is excited about helping us with this project, we also heard back from many of you regarding what you’re looking for.

While we don’t have a definite plan yet, we will be hosting a French Storytime event during the March Break, so watch here for more information! This will be a fun preview of the regular storytime, and you’ll get to meet the wonderful Agathe, our storytime leader!

Now, off to purchase books for these sessions!
