Makerspace Tuesdays

In May the material will be magazines and the project will be coasters.

Drop in anytime as it is a self directed project - FREE PROGRAM

Come create a new project each month as we supply the materials and directions. We will have a new material to work with each month and you take your finished project home. Try your hand at a new skill; all it takes is a little bit of your time.


Book Club - Meeting days will be the first Wednesday of the month

Do you like to share your latest read and engage in lively discussions? Lumby Branch invites you to join a book club that would occur once per month. It is open ot all interested adults and preregistration is not required. A kettle and coffee maker can be provided.  

The title chosen this month is:

The girl who saved the king of Sweden : a novel


Next meeting of the club will be June 1st at 1:00.



Common Threads

Thursdays to the end of June.

The knitting program was so popular that people asked that it be extended in the New Year. We have not only extended the time from 3:00 - 4:30 but will add any needle craft. Come to the library to connect with like-minds. There is usually someone on hand to help with projects. 



Adult Colouring Book Weekends



Colour inside or outside the lines at our Colouring Book Weekends.  Drop in; we'll have colouring sheets, pencil crayons and markers ready to go!   Or feel free to bring in your own colouring books and crayons.  Kids and teens are welcome too!  And if you want to display your finished picture, we'll be happy to put  it on display in the library.



Partnership with the Museum

The library has partnered with the museum to enable you to take a trip through time as you explore the artifacts that we have on display. The collection is especially unique to Lumby history. The collection will be on display until the end of May.

Thank you to the museum for helping us do this.
