Pajama Bedtime Stories – 1, 2nd & 3rd Tuesdays of the month: 6:45 pm
Join us for this fun preschool program where we will help you build early literacy skills with your child by reading, talking, singing and playing together. Wear your pajamas and bring your stuffed animal. Adults must stay for the program. Suitable for ages 18 months – 6

On Dec 18, [our last Bedtime Stories before the Christmas break], we’ll be hosting our popular “Book Exchange” Bring one of your well-loved books from your collection, wrapped up special for giving, and exchange with a friend.

Also, since we’ll miss you so much on the holiday Tuesday nights, and just for some extra fun during the Winter Break, we’ll host story time on the two Saturday mornings, too!

After School Boredom Busters – 1, 2nd & 3rd Tuesdays of the month: 4:30 pm
Stop by and see what’s happening after school. November includes all kinds of financial fun like making a savings bank to store your loot, a round of ‘What’s In the Bank’ (bingo dauber game) and a duct tape wallet. In December we’ll be doing all kinds of holiday fun including making a gift to give to someone special, a wreath for your door and some secret acts of Christmas kindness.

Winter Break Fun – As always, when school’s out, the library is a great place to hang out and have fun. Check out the calendar and stop in for some fun!

The Tree of Warmth – Back by popular demand, the Mildmay Branch welcomes donations of new warm clothing between Nov 20 and Dec 20. Donations will be packed up for distribution to those who could use a little extra help this year. Last year you donated 4 large garbage bags full and we thank you in advance for your generosity again this year!

Adult Book Club – New members are always welcome for on the last Tuesday of the month as the group discusses their most current selection. Copies of the book club book are available at the circulation desk.

Food for Fines – December 1 – 8 – Clear some of your overdue fines and help support local food banks at the same time!  The Library is accepting donations of non-perishable food items for local food banks.  For every item donated, $2.00 will be cleared from your library fines (up to a maximum of $10.00).  Those without fines are welcome to donate as well.

Coming Soon: Bookmobile Fundraising Event – Bruce County Public Library is planning a future bookmobile service, but first we need your help! Watch for details coming soon for our first Bookmobile fundraiser happening this fall!

November is Financial Literacy Month – The library is a great resource for financial information. Explore our collection and displays this month to enhance your financial literacy. Share your tips for “How do you save money?” on our display board. For more information, consult the Financial Literacy Month website: https://www.canada.ca/en/financial-consumer-agency/campaigns/financial-literacy-month.html

All programs are FREE unless otherwise noted. Donations to your library are gratefully accepted. Children 9 years old and younger must be accompanied by an adult, or assigned caregiver who is not less than 12 years old, while in the library.  Children under the age of 5 attending programs may be supervised by the library staff only during the scheduled time of the program; their caregivers must always remain in the library building.  Responsibility for the welfare and the behaviour of children using the library ultimately rests with the parent/guardian or their assigned caregiver. Thank you for your understanding.
