At the Library for December 20th, 2016

Updated 2016/12/19




‘Jamie Oliver’s Christmas Cookbook’ and ‘Christmas Cookie Swap’ are new this week to help bring in the holidays.  For younger readers we have  Gordon Korman’s ‘Jingle’—part 8 of his ‘Swindle’ series.


Please note the Library will be closed Friday, December 23rd through till Monday, December 26th, and again the Library will be closed at 3pm on Saturday, December 31st, and will reopen on Monday, January 2nd for regular hours. We hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday season.


Preschool Story Time and Baby Laptime is on hiatus until January 11th, 2017.


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.


Our website is up and running at:
