At the Library for October 11, 2013

Updated 2016/10/09

Tracey Borman reveals a behind the scenes look at the secrets and scandals attributed to Henry VIII, Anne Boleyn, and Elizabeth I in her highly anticipated book ‘The Private Lives of the Tudors.’

Dustin Milligan’s ‘Bario Leblieux’ is a brightly illustrated look at the activist’s work on ensuring Canadian children had a constitutional right to be taught in either English or French.

Storytime is back! Preschool Story Time is this Wednesday at 11:00 am, 1:15 pm, & 6:30 pm, and Toddler Story Time is 10:00 and 11:00 am. Both will be all about Clothes!

New this fall is Baby Laptime on Fridays at 1 pm. This program is for babies who are not yet walking so a specific age is not really set—best approximation is under 1 year of age. Since we do not have daycare for older siblings we ask that parents who have babies and children who are walking come to the toddler storytime instead of the baby laptime.

FREE one-on-one tech training session for those of you who want to enhance your current computing skills. We cover many topics including Basic Tablet usage, Basic Computer usage, Windows 10 training, Window 8 + 8.1 training, Window 7 training, Microsoft Suit training, Library E book training, and much more. To register, please contact the Library at (250) 426-4063, or sign up at the front desk.

On display this month are the amazing paintings of Grace Ivers.
