Coming Up.... 

Library Bookclub

The bookclub is preparing to reconvene after the summer break.  The fall reading list is available at the library service desk.   Please join us on Sat., October 18th  at 11 am.  We will be discussing "The Ocean at the End of the Lane" by Neil Gaiman.

Join us for a lively conversation, coffee and great books! 


iPad Club

This is a collaborative sharing session where iPad users gather to trade tips and ideas that have been helpful in learning to use the device. (this is not a technical instruction session)  Join this drop-in group and enjoy a cup of tea and learn something new about your iPad.  Next meeting Thursday, October 16 at 3pm.  Please bring your library card and Apple I.D. along with your fully charged iPad.



This volunteer group has been active at the Summerland Library since 1999.  Volunteers bring library materials to those that are homebound and cannot get into the library.  If you are interested in joining this group of dedicated volunteers please ask at the circulation desk.
