Juice Jam (Sat, Feb. 11, 10:30 am):
Come to our “Juice Jam” with Polly Beach! Toddlers, preschoolers, and primary kids will have a great time playing along to Polly’s songs with shakers, bells, drums, and other rhythm instruments. And after we’re done “jamming”, stay for juice and a snack! This is a free program for ages 7 and under.
Local History Digital Archives & Genealogy Demo (Sat, Feb. 11, 2:00 pm):
Interested in local history and genealogy? The Merrickville and District Historical Society will be demonstrating the new software for their Digital Archives collection (housed at the Library). The “Past Perfect” software makes searching for the Society’s Archive collection fast and easy. We’ll also be looking at the Alice Hughes Genealogy Collection and its ongoing digitization project. Learning about Merrickville-Wolford’s past has never been easier.

Do you feel stressed about “getting it all done”? Join Shulamit Ber Levtov, MA, RSW, RYT and Ellie McMillan, E-RYT to learn some easy tips to transform your stress and find more ease and comfort in your life.

Walk away with a “stress-less” essential oil kit that you can use to soothe and nourish you when handling stress.
