Princeton Branch Hours Survey
In 2015, the Princeton Branch's hours will be changing. Due to budget constraints they will likely be reduced. Therefore it is critical that we retain the hours that are most important to you.
Please let us know when you would be most likely to use the library branch.
Please fill out our online survey on or before February 10, 2015. Paper copies of the survey will also be available in branch for those that need them.
Information about the Princeton Branch, its hours of opening, location, and programs may be found on the Princeton branch webpage.» Read More
Unplug and Play: Family Literacy Week
Are your kids getting more screen time than playtime? Celebrate Family Literacy Week by unplugging your children from the electronics and playing instead. It is important for families to make time for children to be creative, engage in play, get outside, and use their imagination. Beyond the physical benefits, play is essential to cognitive, emotional and social growth during the early years of childhood. A healthy balance of unplugging and playing helps kids grow to be healthy, happy, and successful for life.
The central branches of the Okanagan Regional Library have plenty happening during Unplug and Play: Family Literacy Week January 25-31.» Read More
