At the Library for May 9th, 2017

Updated 2017/05/08



‘They Desire a Better Country’ examines the lives and contributions of fifty different winners of the Order of Canada.


Scott Pearson explains to younger readers how invasive species are introduced and the damage they can spread in ‘Zebra Mussels.’ 


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 Mothers! Please note there are only two Story Times left before summer. May 19th will be our last one. I hope everyone comes out for the next 3 weeks.


New this year 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 is Bill Dove’s extensive Falconry display, including equipment, books, photos, and a host of information about this sport.
