Get hands-on with some cool new projects!

Meredith is back with her popular Youtube series! This time around we have a new focus on STEM (science, technology, engineering and math). Join us every Wednesday during July and August by visiting the playlist on our Youtube channel. Offered in partnership with Queen's Science Quest.

Every Child Ready to Read

Every Child Ready to Read

Before children can learn to read, they must develop a range of early literacy skills. Learning begins the moment they are born, through language and play. Find out about the five simple practices that will help you raise a reader.

Museum & Park Passes

Museum and Park Passes

Adventure awaits! Borrow passes for free or discounted admission to several museums, provincial parks and conservation areas. All passes may be borrowed for one week and can be reserved in the library catalogue. 

Prepare to be amazed!

Be dazzled by the magic of WonderPhil! Enjoy his show on our Youtube channel for a limited time, and don't miss the accompanying magic workshop.

It will only be available until until July 15 only so don't miss it! But don't worry.  He'll be back on July 29 and August 19 with two more workshops to help kids (any beginning magicians of all ages!) learn some new tricks. Subscribe to our Youtube channel so you never miss a thing.

Many thanks to our generous Friends of the Library for helping us pull this summer show - and many more - out of our hat!
