Tuesday, March 13 @ 2:00 pm – Raptor Conservancy – SOLD OUT. Wednesday, March 14 @ 2:00 pm – DuffleBag Theatre – Cinderella. Thursday, March 15 @ 2:00 pm – Bumbling Bert, Magician

Our March Break tickets are selling fast! The Raptor Conservancy is sold out and the others are also selling quickly. Bumbling Bert, the Magician will provide a hilarious hour of fun for children of all ages. Who doesn’t love a magician?? DuffleBag Theatre is always so popular and children are engaged and involved in the production the entire time… who will get to go on the stage and meet Cinderella? $3.a00 per ticket is a bargain for good family fun!

Friday, March 16 @ 10:15 – Fun with Science is also full. We appreciate the support of folks participating in our programs and we know your children will enjoy all the opportunities.

FREE Tax Clinic: a community service Saturday March, 10th from 9 am – 1 pm. Please book an appointment by calling BDO – 519-941-0681. Take advantage of this opportunity and the volunteer work by BDO staff.

Coffee, Conversation & Books

After two successful events, it’s finally our turn to host a local author in Shelburne! We will welcome Harry Posner, Dufferin County’s inaugural poet laureate to Jelly Craft Bakery on Wednesday, March 21st @ 7pm. Harry is an accomplished poet and podcaster, and is happy to chat about any of these experiences. Email info@shelburnelibrary.ca to let us know you’ll be coming. Coffee and treats provided courtesy of YOUR library!

Spring Steps

We surpassed our goal of walking the length of the Trans-Canada Highway last year, so we will have no problem surpassing 2018’s goal of walking twice the length of the Bruce Trail (1780km). Challenge yourself to walk the equivalent of the length of the Bruce Trail while you’re at it! All you have to do is sign out a pedometer, track your daily steps, and report into us weekly to help reach this goal! Email jnoble@shelburnelibrary.ca for more information

Children`s Programs:

Since we have so much excitement happening at the library during March Break, Books and Babies, Lego Club and Story Time will NOT be running the week of March 12th – 18th. All programs will resume their usual schedule beginning March 19th.
