Join us for an entertaining experience on Saturday September 24th from 1-2:30pm. Enjoy a chance to get to know some great books and maybe even make a special reading-date with one or two! This program is for kids ages 5-12 and promises to be a lot of fun.
Not to be outdone by the kids; we have a special speed-dating with books program for anyone looking to find something "new" in their life. Join us on Saturday September 24th from 3:00-4:00pm for your chance to maybe meet the book of your dreams!
Our fifth session of 2016 is set for Tuesday September 13th 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 supervision cannot be guaranteed during the open hours of the library. The theme for this event is Characters from Books! So come prepared to spend some time building your version of a favourite book character. Examples: Garfield, Harry Potter, Superman etc.
For more information please stop in and speak with Diana, call her at 250-379-2705 ext 1811, or send an email to email@example.com.

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: firstname.lastname@example.org 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
-LEGOmania! programs for kids
-Notary public visit by Debra Burden (office is located in Vernon BC)
-Book collecting discussion presented by Bernie Spring of Antiquarius Booksellers
-Valentines, Easter, Summer Reading Club, Halloween etc. kids programs with crafts
-Book Club meetings
-Pain Management workshop
...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!
For the summer months we will not be running the book club. Check back in the Fall to see if we will be starting up again. More interest in this program will be needed to ensure it continues; so if you think you know someone who might be interested- let me know and I would be happy to chat with them!
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: email@example.com
