What is the Summer Reading Club

What’s your spark? Where’s your inspiration? Find it this summer at the TD Summer Reading Club, and then join other “makers and shakers” to invent, create, hack, tinker and innovate.

Museum Passes

We've improved our museum passes to make them easier to use. This year, a single pass will admit a group of 2 adults and 3 children to the Agnes Etherington Art Centre, the Pump House Steam Museum and the MacLachlan Woodworking Museum. Visit your favourite or all three! Passes may be borrowed for 1 week and may be reserved in the library catalogue.
