Walk the Wall Challenge

Less than one month left, so let’s see just how far we can get. Our record so far by one individual is 88,000 steps and the total steps for our group is 5.99 million steps. WOW!  Don’t forget to email your step totals to jnoble@shelburnelibrary.ca or phone the library at 519-925-2168!

 

Children’s Programs

March Break is coming up and there are different programs going on at the Library that week. Check the Library website; drop in or call us at 519-925-2168 for more information.

On Tuesday, March 14, we have Cosima Grunsky, then Dufflebag Theatre with the Three Little Pigs on Wednesday, March 15 – both at Grace Tipling Hall and on Thursday, March 16, we have Exotic animals here at the library.  All three shows for $8.00 and the tickets are selling fast. There is a limit of how many we can accommodate.

We have a variety of programs available here at the Library every week for children. Children, ages 2 and up, are welcome for our Story Time on Fridays @ 10:30 a.m. This program has songs, stories and crafts for the little ones.

Paws to Read is a great program, ongoing every Wednesday from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. This program benefits children who would like to improve their reading skills and Mac the therapeutic dog loves to listen to children read to him.

The LEGO CLUB is also on Wednesdays from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. It is great to see the imagination that goes into these different creations each week.

So, drop in to see us or phone the Library to find out how your child can participate, and check out the great books and movies that are available as well.

 

Teen Scene

Teens continue to work on their writing projects each Tuesday after school (3.30 – 4.30 p.m.). The group has also decided that we are going to participate in an upcoming writing competition, so stay tuned for those details.

Teens worked very hard on creating a White Pine Tree for the Library, representing each of the 10 nominated titles in the Forest of Reading’s White Pine category this year. We are looking forward to a night of book-inspired games on Thursday night! We will also be releasing our lineup of March Break events next week!
