What’s happening in August

What's Happening graphicThe 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).


Friday Movies at the Library (Fridays at 2:00 pm – Cancelled Aug. 11)

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.
