Postcards of Solidarity

A postcard making and writing activity for adults and children in partnership with Le Renaissance – Manoir St-Francis.

In this difficult time many seniors find themselves cut off from friends and family. Consider creating an artistic  “postcard of solidarity” to send to a resident of the Manoir St. Francis.

  • Contact the library to let us know you want to take part.
  • We will prepare a selection of craft materials for you and your family to create a colourful, original postcard at home.
  • Bring your finished postcard(s) back to the library and we will deliver them for you.
  • Children and adults alike are welcome to participate.

Lennoxville Reads . . . Poetry!

Wednesday, April 28th at 7pm

On Zoom: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/88007652002

Building on the success of the Library’s annual Canada Reads. . . and so does Lennoxville which was held on March 3rd before an audience of over 120, we are thrilled to present a unique, new take on that esteemed literary event.

Lennoxville Reads . . .Poetry! will feature 5 local presenters, each defending a book of poetry by an English-Language Quebec poet published last year. Join us for a lively discussion and debate, and a chance to get to know better Quebec’s vibrant English-Language poetry scene. Click here to read about the books, and our presenters.

This program presented with the generous support of the Townshippers Foundation

 

Help seed our seed library!

Just in time for the gardening season, the library is starting a seed library.

The idea is to create a repository of vegetable and flower seeds built on seed donations from the community.

If you have extra seeds from your seed purchases, or seeds that you have saved from your garden from previous years, consider donating them to the library. We will provide you with envelopes and ask you to fill out some basic information about the seeds. These will then be made available at the library to all who wish to use them, with the hope that those who borrow seed will donate seeds in the future.

Stop into the library starting the week of March 29th with your seeds.

 

BOOK CLUBS, in French and English

In English: Wednesdays, March 31st, April 14th and 28th at noon

 Click here to join the meeting

In French: no meeting in March & April

On Zoom

Both clubs operate the same way: participants come prepared to share and discuss with the group one or several books they’ve read recently. All are welcome.

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

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.
