This week at the Library

Last night, we had so much fun making seed bombs at our Adult Make & Take night. But if you missed it, don’t worry…we have plenty more coming up this week!

Tuesday, April 24th, we have a workshop called “Gluten: The Wholegrain Truth”, presented by Registered Holistic Nutritionist Laura Kissmann. She’ll aim to dispel the some of the confusion surrounding gluten, including outlining the differences between gluten sensitivity, and celiac disease. If you want to know more, the session starts at 6:30pm. Please call us to register at 257-2702.

On Wednesday, we welcome everyone to attend one of our Social Conversation Circles at 1pm. This is a very informal get-together where we discuss current events, topics of interest, or the weather…depending on what Mother Nature is throwing at us this week. No registration is necessary…just drop in for 1pm, and we’ll get the chatting started.  Refreshments provided.

On Thursday, April 26th, we welcome back our favourite local astronomer Frank Hitchens for a presentation called “The Search for Life off the Earth”, at 6:30pm. He’ll present a fascinating talk about the possibility of life in space and how we are searching for it. If you haven’t been to one of his talks at the library, this is your chance! Call us to register at 257-2702.

Friday is our last French Storytime, but it’s also a Funtivity Drop In from 1:30pm – 3:30pm. That means we’ll be putting out the LEGO for anyone having a PA day, or anyone who might be looking for something to do with the kids that afternoon. It’s always a fun day at the library!



It’s Lego Day! While we’re gearing up for summer, this is our last fun event of the spring. We have boxes and boxes of Lego blocks…all we need is the creativity of youth to help us while away the afternoon.

Drop in for five minutes, or stay all day! It’s going to be a fun afternoon.

PA Days at the Library

ONEWe have LOTS of fun planned for PA Days this school year! If you’re looking for something to do with the kids while they’re off, drop in to the library from 1-3pm for Lego or a movie….we won’t announce which one it is until a few days before each PA day.

No registration is required, and our Lego events and movies will be for all ages. Stay for a few minutes, or stay all afternoon….it’ll be a lot of fun.  While neither program will be supervised the whole time, we would ask that parents remain with young children.

When will these take place?

Friday, Sept. 30, Oct. 7 & 28, Nov. 18 & 25

Monday, January 30

Thursday, Feb. 2

Friday, Feb. 17, April 7, May 19, June 2, 9 & 30

Please watch our Facebook page for current event listings, or call us at the library to find out what’s happening. We hope to see you on your PA Day!


Lego Drop In Added!

LEGOWhile we thought our Lego Drop In dates for early spring were all over, they surprised us by adding a new date to the PA calendar…..Friday, April 15th!  That means, if you’re looking for something to do this afternoon, we’re holding a Lego Drop In from 2-4pm here at the library for kids of all ages.

No registration is necessary, just drop by and have fun.  Note to parents: this will be mostly unsupervised, so if you’re coming with young children, please plan on staying. See you this afternoon!
