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!

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 planning is well under way- 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 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!
