At the Library for January 8th, 2019

Updated 2019/01/07



Murphy Schewchuck’s ‘Kootenay Tips and Trails’ is a brilliantly illustrated guide to our backyard; more notably “a land that can keep you enthralled for years.”


In ‘Junk Drawer Geometry’ Bobby Mercer teaches children how to discover geometric concepts using everyday items such as pipe cleaners, straws, crackers and playing cards.


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 dogs!   Baby Laptime is every Thursday at 11 am.


Our website with all kinds of great information and links can be found at:


We also have a new JUST FOR TEENS section on our website, located here:
