What would you like to see happening in our library branch?

We are looking for ideas of programs, crafts, seminars, discussions, etc. that we could have here in our library that are geared towards adults and those who have celebrated their 29th Birthday more than anyone can ever think is actually plausible... If you have something interesting to share with your neighbours and fellow Falklandites stop by and speak with Diana!  You can also send me an email at: falkland@orl.bc.ca if you think of something really great at 3am!


Some ideas that may come to fruition:

- Visit from a Notary Public to chat about estate planning, wills, and all the wonderful things a Notary can do!

- Visit from a local Bibliophile (book collector and book lover) to chat about what to look for on your own bookshelves or in those boxes that have been sitting in your basement for 15 years since Great Aunt Edna passed...

- A Games Night: Scrabble, Monopoly, Clue, Bingo, Crazy 8's, Cribbage...come...play...become the champion of the World!! (okay, maybe not- but it would be lots of fun!)

- Local crafters/painters/knitters/quilters...art/craft show. Perhaps recruit some more bodies for your hobby! And PS- the library has some good books to help you create something special or new!

- A repeat of the Ukarianian Eggs crafting day! It is was quite popular and there are a few more people that have expressed interest in this recently.

-...??? Let me know your ideas, or if you are interested in attending any of the programs mentioned above!


Summer Reading Club 2015:

Registration for the Summer Reading Club program and activities begins on Tuesday June 23rd. This is a FREE summer-long program for kids ages 5-12 that focuses on encouraging children to read, explore their world, and to continue learning throughout the summer months. Registration is required for participation in this program as well as to attend the special events. Each week a new activity, project, or goal is introduced in the branch so kids are encouraged to visit the library as often as possible.

Every week a name will be drawn from the book draw and one lucky child will get a chance to select a book of their own to take home and keep! Other activities and goals also have exciting prizes to be won. If you would like any information about Summer Reading Club or any of our services please stop by or give us a call!

  • "Build It" Magic Show: Monday July 6th @ 11am
  • Duct Tape Creations: Saturday July 18th (2 sessions) 11am- 12pm or 1pm-2pm (max. 6 kids per session)
  • Just Bead It!: Friday July 24th @ 1pm
  • Prize Draws and Wind-Up Party: Saturday August 22nd @ 1pm

Watch your child's reading skills grow this summer!


Another Internet Computer is now available at the Falkland branch!

Exciting news for local residents and people passing through our wonderful community. Our old catalogue computer recently stopped working and we were given the fantastic opportunity to change to a computer that will allow internet access, printing, and still allow access to the catalogue through our website. This computer does require users to log-in using their library barcodes (out of town guests may ask staff for a temporary pass.) This new computer will be available for 15 minute sessions, and the previous Internet terminal has been changed to 60 minute sessions. Please speak with staff if you have any questions or comments about this exciting new development!


LEGO Mania 2015 Dates:

Join us on the following dates for some special LEGO programs. Kids need to bring a parent/guardian/responsible adult with them to this program and be prepared to have a lot of fun! All LEGO building pieces will be provided so please leave your own at home. Space is limited so please be sure to let staff know if you are interesting in coming.


Free-Play Evening: Tuesday June 16th from 6-8pm.

Drop by the branch for some self-directed fun! Bring mom, dad,

uncle, aunt, or another responsible (but fun) adult and have a play date!

All LEGO bricks and minifigures will be provided. Supervision by staff will not

be possible during this event, and there will not be any snacks/drinks provided.


...keep checking for more dates! Don't forget to speak with staff about our Kids Programming email list!


Book Club:

For the time being we are taking a hiatus from our bookclub. Check back in the later part of August for more information on when, and how, we will be starting back up again.

If you are interesting in joining our group please stop by and speak with Diana. You can also send her an email at: falkland@orl.bc.ca if you would like more information or would like an email when the group starts up again! 

What's New:

  • We now have another terminal which may be used for Internet access! Our Catalogue computer has been modified so that it may be used as either an Internet terminal or for searching our catalogue of materials. A library card must be used to log-in to this terminal now- so please speak with staff if you do not have a card or forget yours!
  • Summer Reading Club is set to begin on June 23rd in our library- stop by and speak with staff to receive more information about the programs or to let us know about any allergies/dietary issues for which your child may need special consideration. We try our best to ensure all snacks are nut-free but we cannot guarantee that there isn't an ingredient that might cause a problem!
  • We are offering some exciting adult and family programs this year- if you have any ideas of something you would like to see the library offer in the way of programming please stop by and speak with Diana.
  • We have a wonderful selection of great Feature Film movies in our branch. So if you are bored with re-runs on TV or want to try something different; stop by and see what we have to offer. Don't forget that we also have many popular television seasons available to borrow!
  • 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 or send us an email asking to be added: falkland@orl.bc.ca!
