At the Library for October 18th, 2016

Updated 2016/10/17

Nujeen is the memoir of Nujeen Mustafa, who escaped war-torn Syria into Germany, which is all the more miraculous as she suffers from cerebral palsy and is wheelchair bound.

Camile McCue teachers youngsters how to write computer code with a series of games humorous puzzles.

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 Spiders!

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.
