Happy Heart


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.

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 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!


Book Club: On hiatus for now...

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: falkland@orl.bc.ca
