Library Literary Event: Sunday, April 7, 2019 @ 2:00 pm: David T. Chapman (our favourite storm chaser) will be back at YOUR Library with his “Exploring the Birds of Ontario” presentation. We still have some spaces left, so register by calling the library at 519-925-2168 or emailing

We have a great lineup of events planned for April:

A screening of You Are Here: A Come From Away Story- Wednesday, April 17th @ 1pm

Coffee, Conversation & Book’s Claire Smith (Grand Valley)- Wednesday, April 17th @ 7pm

Traveler’s Tales featuring Gord Gallaugher (Chile & Argentina)- Tuesday, April 30th @ 7pm

NEW: SEED LENDING LIBRARY @YOUR LIBRARY: It won’t be long now until you’ll be able to access local, non-GMO seeds from YOUR Library. Seeds for herbs, flowers, and vegetables will be available to you to “borrow,” grow, and enjoy. We are hoping at the end of the growing season, you will let a few of your plants go to seed and harvest those seeds to return to the library. We even have a seed saving workshop planned for September, so keep your eyes peeled for those details.


Teens spent last week working on our submission for the White Pine Art Award competition. If one of our participants win this competition, the Library would win 25 of next year’s Forest of Reading nominees, and the participant would win a copy of 2019’s winning White Pine book! How cool?!

Upcoming events:

Tuesday, April 9th, 4:00-5:00pm- DIY Marble Pots (registration required)

Tuesday, April 16th, 4:00-5:00pm- Easter Minute to Win It (registration preferred)

Tuesday, April 30th, 4:00-5:00pm- White Pine Vote Day
