Have some leftover wool? Enjoy making slippers but everyone at home already has 6 pairs? The library is looking to start a "Slipper Bin" inside the branch so those who have mucky-shoes can wear a pair and save the flooring! So if you have some time and/or materials and would like to make a pair of Mens, Ladies, or Kids-size slippers please do so and bring them in on or before March 31st. For each pair of slippers you bring you will receive an entry into a $20.00 cash prize draw! So dust off the needles and get knitting (or crocheting!)
And don't forget if you need to find any knitting patterns; the library has a large number of fantastic books available to borrow!
Diana's first slipper...almost done!
...and the finished product!
The popular Ukrainian Egg making program is coming back to the library in March (5th and 6th) so please get in touch with Diana to reserve your spot today! Sessions run on the Friday (adults only) from 11am-1pm and 1pm to 3pm and on the Saturday (adults and kids) from 11am-1pm and 1pm-3pm. Each two hour session can accomodate 4 people.
Register soon for the upcoming program on April 23rd from 1-3pm. We will be making modeling clay flower magnets! This program promises to be a lot of fun for adults and older kids alike. Check out our upcoming events calendar for more information.
Our first session of 2016 is set for Tuesday February 23rd from 6-8pm at the library. This is a drop-in FREE program so please stop by for a few minutes or the full 2hrs! Parents must accompany children as supervisor cannot be guaranteed during the open hours of the library. The theme for this event is Monster Mayhem- so put on your thinking caps and prepare for a monstrously good time! For more information please stop in and speak with Diana, call her at 250-379-2705 ext 1811, or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
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: email@example.com if you think of something really great at 3am!
Some programs that we have had over the past year include:
-several sessions of Ukrainian Egg Making (next one is set for November 14th --see above for details)
-LEGOmania! programs for kids
-Notary public visit by Debra Burden (office is located in Vernon BC)

...if you have ideas for other programs we might arrange, or would like to see a repeat of any of the above programs please let Diana know!
The Falkland Branch Book Club is once again getting started! The title we are currently reading is: Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood. Copies are now available at the branch- please speak with Diana. The next meeting will be held on Wednesday February 24th at 7:30pm inside the library. Coffee, Tea, and cookies will be provided…so please bring your enthusiasm, your thoughts on this title, and if you have some ideas of other titles we might read- bring those too!
This is an “open” group so anyone and everyone living in the Falkland area is invited to attend whenever possible. If this meeting won’t work for you, skip it and try next time! Our focus for the group is simply to expose ourselves to some different books and authors that we might never think to select on our own. Lofty and in-depth discussions can occur; but generally we keep our discussions fairly light on the technical, political, and other more “serious” aspects of the books.
If you are interesting in joining our group but have any questions please stop by and speak with Diana. You can also send her an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Hope to see you at the next meeting!

The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt.
