Children’s Activities

SATURDAY MORNING STORYTIME AND CRAFT ACTIVITIES

Saturday mornings at 10:30

 

April 6th: Storytime in English. Theme:____

April 13th: Bilingual Storytime. Theme: The underwater world

April 20th: Family Poetry Workshop

Poetry (and sushi) has never been so much fun! Local haiku poet Angela Leuck will introduce Renga, the exciting Japanese poetry game and guide us in writing a collective poem while we eat delicious home-made vegetarian sushi.

Everyone can play, and all ages are welcome. No experience necessary. The workshop will mainly be facilitated in English, but translation will be available, and participation in both languages is encouraged. We hope that the end result will be a bilingual literary creation– a true reflection of our community. Advance registration encouraged, but not required.

April 27th: Art Workshop for Kids

Children are invited to participate in an art workshop (coloured pencil on paper) around the theme of “Mon Nomadisme/ Mon voyage à moi” exploring voyages and travel, whether imaginary, literary, poetic, or physical. Their works will be hung in the kids section until the end of May. Children who can’t participate during the workshop are welcome to come anytime and contribute their work

We are always looking for qualified and enthusiastic storytime volunteers.  Note that any volunteer working with children at the library will be required to obtain standard police clearance.   Bilingual candidates with early childhood education experience preferred. Contact the library for details.

Book Clubs

The English language “Books and Brown Bags” usually meets every other Wednesday from 12pm to 1pm. All are welcome to bring lunch and come discuss a book they have recently enjoyed, or just listen to what others have enjoyed.

UPCOMING MEETINGS: April 3rd & April 17th at 12pm

The French language “Club de Lecture” meets monthly to discuss what participants have been reading in a relaxed and convivial atmosphere.

UPCOMING MEETING: April 26th at 1:30 pm

Are you an Anglophone looking to brush up your French, or a Francophone looking to practice your English? Both clubs welcome the participation of those looking to connect with literature and conversation in another language.
