Book Buck Spending Week!

It’s Book Buck Spending Week #1 next week! We’re setting up the window, and filling it with lots of great items to purchase with those book bucks! If you have a teen reader who has been reading and collecting book bucks, remind them to stop in next week to see what we have. Drop in every day (the window will be constantly changing), or wait until the September spending week to get the most out of your book bucks!

This is what we’ve been waiting for all summer!


Hey Toddlers!

We’re almost done with babies, and that means we’re thinking about Toddlers now. Join us for a fun five-week session of stories, early literacy games, rhymes and more. It’s going to be a busy morning, but lots of fun, too!

This program runs Thursday mornings at 9:30am, from Oct. 26 – Nov. 30. Register your child aged 1-2 years old by calling 257-2702, or dropping by the library anytime before the session begins.

Toddlers at the Library

toddlerWe’re just finishing up with babies this fall, and now it’s almost time for Toddlers again! We love when these little ones come for toddler time—sessions filled with stories, songs, rhymes, and even some American Sign Language!

If you have a child aged 1-2 years old, we’re taking registrations beginning Wednesday, October 19th, for our Thursday morning sessions that start on November 3rd. Each session will last about 25 minutes, and is a great transition between babytime and storytime. It’s all about learning some literacy skills, and having a great time at the library.

These sessions tend to be sort of small, so if you’re not a fan of the big groups (like babytime and storytime), this might be a nice way to introduce your child to the library, and to get out of the house. Give us a call this week, or drop by the library to sign up in person. We can’t wait!

The Toddlers are Coming!

It’s almost July, and that means we’re getting back into programs again. This month, we’re starting registration for our Toddler sessions on Thursday mornings at 9:30am, for children aged 1-2 years old. This is always a fun morning, full of wiggly toddlers who will have fun listening to stories, learning some sign language, and getting in a few secret early literacy skills.  It’s also fun for the parents, and you’ll have lots of time to check out items after the session.

Please drop in or give us a call to register so that we can save you a space. The program is a great transition for kids coming from babytime, who aren’t quite ready to jump into Storytime with the big kids. If you have any questions, give us a call at 257-2702 or drop in to get more information.


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 (, or give us a call at 257-2702. It’s going to be an exciting winter….even if we don’t get any snow!
