At the Library for November 13th, 2018

Updated 2018/11/12

 

 

A forester shares his favourite stories with incredible photography in Peter Wohlleben’s ‘The Hidden Life of Trees.’

 

Sent to a camp to train how to be a big sister, a young girl is determined to be the worst big sister ever in Judith Viorst’s ‘Lulu is Getting a Sister.’

 

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 Travel.  Baby Laptime is every Thursday at 11 am.

 

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.

The full colour calendars feature brilliant local photography, and a chance to win prizes every single day of 2019. Calendars are $10.00 each, and make a great gift.
