I'm on the library board this term. Laurie Harrison the library director emails me these great updates on Mondays before council meetings. The idea is that I can share them with council, and the public during the reports section at the end of the council meeting. It just occurred to me that there are more ways to share info than at a council meeting, so starting today I'll pass on Laurie's library updates through the blog too.
Holiday Closure – The library will be closed December 23-26 inclusive and will close early at 1 p.m. on December 31.
From Dinosaurs to Mammals
The Canadian Museum of Nature Suitcase traveling exhibition will be on display in the Children’s Library from December 22 to February 6. Drop in to view this exciting display of a dramatic time in the history of the earth’s changing environment.
Library Membership – The Perfect Christmas Gift
A library membership is the perfect gift or stocking stuffer, especially those who are hard to buy for. If you were to purchase 5 new books, 3 magazines, rent 8 movies, purchase 2 audio books, attend one adult program and 3 children’s programs, and use 6 hours of Internet anywhere else but the library it would cost well over $230. You can receive all this and more for the cost of $15.00 per family or $7.50 single membership per year.
Give A Little
The Giving Tree
Children’s Library will be accepting stocking stuffer donations for the Giving Tree from December 1 to December 20. New items such as socks, toothbrushes, hats, mitts gratefully accepted. Items will decorate a tree in the Children’s Dept. and then be donated to Odyssey House.
