COFFEE, CONVERSATION & BOOKS

This is an event you won’t want to miss! On May 15th, 2019 we will feature author Debra Komar at Jelly Craft Bakery at 7pm! Debra will speak about her most recent book, The Court of Better Fiction. This book chronicles how in the rush to establish dominion over the North, two innocent Inuit men were executed by the State. Email jnoble@shelburnelibrary.ca to let us know you’ll be attending!

TEEN SCENE:

We have lots of neat events on the horizon, so make sure to check out our calendar and register for those events you wish to attend! We are offering a new program called Fresh Ink, where writers of all ages will be able to come and work on their writings, and perhaps even share them with the group for constructive feedback. After a few sessions, we’re going to start planning an open mic night, where our writers will be able to present the writings they’ve been working on! Our first session is Tuesday, May 28th @ 4:00-5:00pm, and we look forward to seeing you there!

Books & Babies: Tuesday mornings, 10:00 am – 11:00 am – After your morning walk in the fresh, Spring air, come and visit this drop-in group for parents and children 2 years old and under. A group full of great conversation, and a safe place for children to socialize with others their own age.

LEGO Club: Wednesday afternoons, 3:30 pm – 4:30 pm – This drop-in program for children ages 6-12 has a brand new build challenge every single week. As your child’s skills grow they can also attempt the weekly “Expert Build Challenge”. Several Snap Circuit kits are also available to explore while visiting LEGO Club. Watch our team LEGO structure grow as members complete challenges and add a block to our team build every week. We have started incorporating other STEM activities and experiments each week along with building our LEGO creations.

Story Time: Friday mornings, 10:30 am – 11:30 am -This is a drop-in group full of singing, dancing, and stories. Each week we have a themed craft that connects to what we learned from our story. Visit Story Time, and leave with new friends and amazing art creations. For the month of May we will talk about plants, gardens, Spring weather, and how things grow!
