Do you ever wonder how art and technology intersect?  Check out his podcast, The Sill, or better yet, come out to Jelly Café and ask him your questions in person! Coffee and treats provided. Registration required. Email info@shelburnelibrary.ca to register.

OSAP PRESENTATION

The OSAP presentation is just a couple of weeks away, and we need 40 registrants in order for the presentation to go ahead. This will be a very valuable chance for parents to accompany their kids to such a meeting, so it’s a chance you won’t want to miss. Email jnoble@shelburnelibrary.ca to register.

Spring Steps

You have a little over a week to register for our Spring Steps Challenge! You can use your own step-tracking device, or borrow a pedometer from us using your library card. After that, just keep track of your daily steps between March 20th-May 15th, and report your steps weekly to us. We are also working on scheduling another group hike, so keep watching for details. Email jnoble@shelburnelibrary.ca to register.
