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!

Storytime Registration Begins!

Hey!It’s time to begin registering for the 2016 Storytime session!  This is a fun program for children aged 2-5 years old, with stories, songs, rhymes, and lots of pre-literacy skills in an entertaining environment. It’s also the perfect time to get your child a library card to start instilling the love of books.

Call us or drop by the library to register for one of two sessions on Wednesday mornings: 9:30am, or 10:15am.  And hurry, spaces will fill up quickly!

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!

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!

Conferencing

storytimereminderWe’re going to be away at the Ontario Library Association Super Conference for a few days, so storytime and babytime are cancelled this week.

Don’t worry, you can still sign up for next week by calling 257-2702. We’ll be excited to get back at it. As usual, however, if the buses are cancelled due to poor weather conditions, we don’t run programs. Please listen to your local radio station for more details, or watch here on Facebook for a post.

See you next week!
