Fall Bulb Sale (Sept. 6 – 10):
Back by popular demand! The Friends of the Library will be selling Vesey bulbs from Sept. 6 – 10 at the Royal Bank to raise funds for the library – and help all our gardens recover from this summer’s dry weather. The colourful selection includes: purple passion blend tulips, sky blue lilies, pink daffodils, giant purple allium, plus spring flowers (crocuses, windflowers, etc.) and several assortments. Enhance your garden and your library at the same time!
Friday Movies (Sept. 9 & 23, 2:00 pm):
Our afternoon movies for adults will continue on the 2nd & 4th Fridays of the month. This month we’ll be showing: “Water” & “The Grand Budapest Hotel”
Off the Shelf! (Mon, Sept. 19, 7:00 pm):
Expect the Unexpected! Our popular “Readings for Adults” program is back for another year of literary hijinks with host Martin Green! Over the years Off the Shelf has built up an enthusiastic group of readers and listeners – but there’s always room for more. Mark the 3rd Monday of the month on your calendars, or contact the library if you’d like to be added to our e-mail list.
After-School Youth Group (Wednesdays, 4:00, starting Sept. 14):
The library is a great place to go after school – to do homework, read, use the computers, or hang with your friends. Plus, activities on Wednesday afternoons. Drama? Crafts? Something else? Come by and let us know what you’re interested in!
StoryTime (Fridays, 10ish):
Bring your toddler or preschooler (ages 5 & under) to the library for StoryTime Friday mornings at 10:00(ish). Our drop-in StoryTime is a great way to develop your child’s early literacy and group interaction skills in a fun and relaxed setting. StoryTime uses the Every Child Ready To Read pre-literacy programming to promote key skills that will help your child become a successful reader – through stories related to a theme, songs, rhymes & rhythm instruments, and a simple craft. New StoryTimers are always welcome!
LEGO Club (Saturdays, 10 – 12 drop-in):
Come for brick-building fun!
