Winter Story Time will begin January 14 - FREE program    

Read, Build, Play is our NEW concept for Story time.

Thursdays at 11:30 - Drop in program

Bringing play into our story time can assist in the early literacy component. The adults are invited to share in hands on activities after we read a story or two. Much of the focus will be on the alphabet and letter sounds. All materials are supplied.

Each child will be given a booklet which is theirs to discover the alphabet through drawing, colouring and stickers. 

Duplo will be our play activity where we will build with the focus on the stories we read.


Book Club

Do you like to share your latest read and engage in lively discussions? Lumby Branch invites you to join us in starting a book club that would occur once per month. It is open ot all interested adults and preregistration is not required. A kettle and coffee maker can be provided. We would love to have you meet in our library and can order any books that you may require. 


Common Threads

Thursdays in January, February and March.

The knitting program was so popular that people asked that it be extended in the New Year. We have not only extended the time from 3:00 - 4:30 but will add any needle craft. Come to the library to connect with like-minds. There is usually someone on hand to help with projects. 


 Lego Club -

First Tuesday in January, February and March - 2:45 - 3:45 PM

This is a club based on a theme each session. Imagination is the key component! A portion of a story will be read and then the creations begin. Lego is supplied by the library. Registration is suggested.


February Lego Club - Super Saver Machines - 



 Makerspace Tuesdays

Tuesdays in January, February and March EXCLUDING THE FIRST TUESDAY

starts at 3:00 PM but can drop in anytime after as it is a self directed project - FREE PROGRAM
