Updated Hours of Operation

After a 6-month trial being open on Tuesday nights, analysis of the patronage during those hours did not support being open at that time. We are open 7 days a week to best serve our patrons, however, we always seek feedback to serve YOU better. Watch for an upcoming survey regarding our hours.

Teen Scene:

We have lots of exciting ideas for Teen programming in 2020, so make sure you keep an eye out for our monthly calendars.

Upcoming Events:

Tuesday, January 14th, 4:00pm-5:00pm- TAB Meeting

Tuesday, January 21st, 4:00-5:00pm- DIY Cookie Dough*

We’re also looking to add a few new members to our Teen Advisory Board. This group meets monthly and helps plan our Teen events while earning community service hours. If your Teen is interested, please fill out an application (found at www.shelburnelibrary.ca/TAB.html) and return it in person to the Library c/o Jade Wyse, or email it to jwyse@shelburnelibrary.ca!

Children’s Programs

Children’s programming will resume the week of January 13th-17th.

Books & Babies: Tuesday mornings, 10:00 am – 11:00 am -Put on your warm, winter clothes 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”. LEGO CLUB is often not just LEGO! We also have lots of fun 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. 

Need more information about any of our programs? Call us at 519-925-2168, or email children@shelburnelibrary.ca.
