Things have been incredibly busy around the library lately, a sign that summer is in full swing. However, most of the craziness was probably due to our first annual Summer Library Camp. We had kids ages 4-6 in the mornings and kids ages 7-12 in the afternoons coming in for reading, games, and most importantly, puppet workshops with the Travelling Puppet Show. Our summer students Matt and Katie were kept on their toes all week by numerous enthusiastic younglings. We have Country Grocer to thank for satiating some of their youthful hunger by generously donating snacks.
Though it’s calmed down around here, we are by no means bored. On Wednesday we are hosting the next installment of the Summer Reading Club activities. This week’s theme is “The Great Construction Day”. Contraptions will be built, cities will rise. Don’t miss out!
On Thursday afternoon, we are hosting our monthly book club meeting. If you’ve missed out so far, there’s still time to squeeze in some reading of Crow Lake by Mary Lawson.
For Friday and Saturday, we are pleased to announce the return of professional videographer Tristan Bellmane. He will be hosting a two day workshop for teens ages 13-18. The content will cover storyboarding, shooting, editing, and much, much more. There are still some spots left, so sign up!
On top of all that, we are very excited to announce that our feature author of the week, Patrick Taylor, is doing a reading on Wednesday evening! Join us at 4pm as we welcome back local Irish-Canadian author Patrick Taylor, writer of the popular Irish Country Doctor series. Dr. Taylor will read from the recently released Now and In the Hour of Our Death, a novel of the Irish troubles and sequel to Pray for Us Sinners, about war torn lovers who find themselves worlds apart.
That’s all for now! We’ll be back next week to enthrall you with tales from the library.
