The Library continues to offer great reads and great summer activities in August. For more info about any of the library’s programs, contact us (or 613-269-3326).
Note: The library will be open all this month, but will have some reduced hours and closed days from Aug 28 – Sept 4 (see below).
TD Summer Reading Club!:
The library is running the TD Summer Reading Club to encourage reading for kids of all ages! If you’re not involved yet, it’s not too late! Get a ticket our Prize Draw for each book read. We also have activities for school-aged kids on Thursday afternoons at 2:00. Contact the library for more info.
Makey-Makey “Journey Across Canada” Obstacle Course (Wed, Aug 16, 6:30 pm):
Kids (age 7+) can have fun learning about circuits as we build and test a “cross-Canada” trail/obstacle course using a Makey-Makey (more info on our website). We’ll build the (indoor) obstacle course, set up the circuits (using the Makey-Makey), then we’ll try out the obstacle course to see if (and how) it works. This is a fun activity for kids who like to make stuff and experiment with technology. Contact the library to register or find out more!
LEGO Club (Saturdays, 10 – 12 noon):
Building with LEGO is another great way to play, and our LEGO Club continues on Saturday mornings between 10 and noon.
StoryTime (Fridays, 10ish):
StoryTime for ages 6 & under (and a parent/caregiver) continues through the summer! Join us for stories, rhymes & a simple craft – plus practice listening skills, taking turns, and being part of a group. It’s a fun way to prepare for starting school this fall.
Our BabyTime program is on hiatus for August. But look for us Thursdays at 1:00 in September. Contact the library for more information.
