Yes, it’s true. E.L. James is about to release a new book based on her series, this one titled DARKER. It will tell the same tale as the second book in her FIFTY SHADES series (FIFTY SHADES DARKER), but this time told from Christian’s perspective.

Are you excited about reading it?


Star Wars Reads Day

We’re celebrating Star Wars Reads day this coming Saturday at the library. Drop in anytime between 10am – 5pm for a fun Star Wars I spy, a special photo wall, and lots of fun take homes—including books! We LOVE Star Wars at the library, and we know you do, too. Every day should be Star Wars Reads Day!

(Psssstt……dress as your favourite Star Wars character for extra fun!)

Long Weekend

It’s a long weekend coming up, and that means the library will be closed for an extra day. Make sure you drop in ahead of Thanksgiving to pick out new materials, renew items, or to use our WiFi. While we’re closed, you’ll still have access to our online resources, but you’ll need your library card and PIN to access them, so make sure you’ve got that all sorted.

Here are the library hours as follows:

Friday, October 6th — OPEN 9:30am – 5:30pm

Saturday, October 7th — OPEN 10:00am – 5:00pm

Sunday, October 8th — CLOSED

Monday, October 9th — CLOSED

Enjoy your long weekend!



Looking for something to do during PA Days this year? We’ve got a plan–and we’re calling them “Funtivity Days”!
Drop in during a Funtivity Day for Lego in the afternoon between 1:30 – 3:30pm. If it also happens to be a snow day, we’ll have a special I Spy, as well.
Funtivity Days are drop in only–no registration required. But keep in mind, these Lego afternoons have minimal supervision. If you have young children, please plan on staying in the room.
Funtivity days fall on Oct. 6 & 27, Nov. 24, Jan 26 & 31, Feb. 16, Apr. 27, May 18 & June 8. (We celebrate all PA Days for children in our communities, including the Upper Canada School Board, the Catholic School Board of Eastern Ontario, Ottawa Public School Board, and the Ottawa Catholic School Board. We understand that not every school has the same PA Days, so please consult your OWN school schedule.)

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.
