At the Library for December 13th, 2016

Updated 2016/12/12




Denise Marchessault has included recipes from every corner of our province in her latest cookbook ‘British Columbia from Scratch.’


In ‘Dining with Dinosaurs’ Hannah Bonner describes in a uniquely entertaining way just what all the creatures from the Mesozoic period actually ate.


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 Christmas trees!


New this season 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.

FOOD FOR FINES: For the entire month of December, the Library will be accepting donations of non-perishable food as payment for overdue fines. One item will be worth one dollar of fines. Any canned or boxed non-perishable food items will be accepted. All donations will be delivered to the food bank throughout the holiday season. This is a great way to get rid of those pesky overdue fines while helping others in need.


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.


New at the Library is a 2000-piece jigsaw puzzle of Bavaria’s Neuschwanstein Castle. It is located in our reading lounge, so any and all puzzle enthusiasts are encouraged to come work on it.

On display this month is the incredible holiday display courtesy of Kathy Simon.
