Michelle Whibley (the Oyama branch Community Librarian) has kindly agreed to handle the Summer Reading Club programming here in the Falkland library. She will be visiting the local Elementary in June to share information about the programs offered this summer. If your children do not attend Falkland Elementary School, or miss this visit from Michelle; please contact Diana at the library and she will gladly pass on this information to you!
Mrs. Richoux's and Mrs. Munk's classes have been making regular visits to the library each month. With their library card present, children are able to take home library materials. If you aren't sure if your child has a card, or it you would like to create a membership for them; please stop by the library and speak with staff. Memberships are FREE for all persons living in our service area. And if you would like to see your children visit with their class- please speak with Diana at the library and/or your children's teacher!
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. If you would like to be notified of upcoming programs and events please ask to be added to our Youth Programming mailing list (send an email to address listed above!)
The back issues of our magazines are finally ready for purchase. Stop and check out the selection on the back table.
Unfortunately there are some important changes to note in regards to magazines that the Falkland branch currently has available. Several magazines are no longer in print or have been discontinued:
Mental Floss has ceased publication. We will be making all library copies of this publication available for checkout until the end of 2017.
Quilter's Newsletter has ceased publication. We will be making all library copies of this publication available for checkout until the end of 2017.
Vegetarian Times has ceased publication. We will be making all library copies of this publication available for checkout until the end of 2017.
If you have any magazines in mind that you would like the library to consider for future subscription please stop by and speak with Diana or send her an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org Ideas from local community members are always appreciated!
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: email@example.com if you think of something really great at 3am!
Some programs that we have had over the past year include:
...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!
At this time we do not have enough persons interested to run the book club through the library. If you are already part of another book club, or are interested in hosting one; please speak with Diana and she will be happy to help you spread the word and help find some great books to read.
This summer Michelle Whibley (who works as a Community Librarian in our Oyama library branch) will be taking over the Summer Reading Club programming here in Falkland. She has some amazing ideas and is looking forward to meeting our fantastic Falkland kids! She has plans to arrange a visit at Falkland Elementary sometime in June; and information on the dates for programs and their times will be coming out then.
We have some amazing new Library book bags here in the branch. The price has been lowered to $2.00 per bag with this new design. Pick one up next time you are in the branch.
We have had an A.E.D. device installed here in the library thanks to the PAD program and the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
We have a number of modified shelving units in the branch that make re-arranging the space for programs very easy. Stop by and Diana will be happy to show them to you!
Tyler (of Defining Decor- the other tenant in the same building as the library) makes some beautiful displays in the foyer. Stop by to check them out.
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 and Television series in our branch. So if you are bored with re-runs on TV or want to try something different; stop by and see what we have to offer.
We have a Youth Services email list that parents/caregivers may sign up for so that they can be kept informed about upcoming Children's programs and events. See staff to sign up or send us an email asking to be added: firstname.lastname@example.org!
