Summer Reading Club 2014:

This summer's theme of "Funny Business" brought a smile to the faces of many kids through July and August! We had 10 kids complete their reading records to receive medals and certificates of achievement. Many kids received books and other prizes during the contests and weekly bookdraws including; Kaitlyn, Avery, Amber, Lewis, Max, Morgan, and Chantelle - to name only a few! Thank you to all of the kids who made this year's program a wonderful sucess! 

 

 

 

 

 


 

Next Book Club Meeting: Wednesday November 5th!

Join us at the library for discussion of the title(s) listed below. This is an open group and we are always happy to see new members at our meetings. We generally do not engage in "lofty" discussions about the books- but instead explore some of the interesting ideas or themes inside the stories...our main goal is to try reading a bit out of our own comfort zones and maybe come across some books we might never have thought to read! For more information about the group or if you would be interested in joining us please contact Diana at the Falkland branch.

 Currently Reading: Angelology by Danielle Trussoni.

The current title may be available at the branch. Please speak with staff.

The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry: a novel by Rachel Joyce.

For those that missed the last meeting we discussed The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry: a novel by Rachel Joyce. This story details the story of a man who receives a letter one morning from a dying friend and decides on the spur of the moment to walk across England to see this friend.  The adventures and people he experiences along the way will leave you laughing, crying, and shaking your head. Once you sink your teeth into this story you will be hooked...


What's New:

  • We are starting the migration process to our new computer system so some of our services are limited at this time (everything should be back up and running as per normal on October 9th in this branch, sooner in some of our other libraries.)
  • Our A/C units have been working hard to keep things cool for the past 2 months and we expect that there will be no changes to our schedule of hours next summer.
  • Diana is busy planning the next Children's program which is set to be held on Saturday October 25th at 1pm. Kids will be Tie-dying their own fabric, and listening to some great stories! Please speak with staff if you have questions. Registration is required for this program.
  • We have a Youth Services email list that parents may sign up for so that they can be kept informed about upcoming Children's programs and events. See staff to sign up!
