At the Library for May 16th, 2017

Updated 2017/05/15




‘Option B’ is Sheryl Sandberg’s (CEO Faceboo, Google) experience of building a resilient outlook on life after the sudden death of her husband.


‘Why Do Families Change?’ explains to younger readers the difficulties they may face during separation and / or divorce, and answers questions they may have about their place in the family. Written by Family Psychologist Jillian Roberts.  



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 teddy bears. Please note there is only one Story Time left before summer. May 19th will be our last one. I hope everyone comes out for this week.


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. 


Please note the Library will be closed on Monday, May 22 for Victoria Day.
