Well, October is upon us, and we're off to the library! This month is Canadian Library Month; a time to consider the impact our libraries have on our communities.
In addition to books, libraries lend audio-visual materials, including hard-to-find documentaries, movies and tv series you won't find on Youtube or Netflix.
Libraries are also a wonderful resource to discover what activities and services exist in your local area.
This is especially helpful if you're new in town. Meeting rooms hold various gatherings, including book clubs, author talks, and events for special interest groups.
Our libraries also provide activities outdoors such as storytime, tours and holiday craft-making. In addition, there are services online, including ordering mystery or themed grab bags. To see what's happening this month at the Thorold public library, check out their latest newsletter here.
Did you enjoy Brian Dettmer's book art? Does paper-based art inspire you? If so, you'll want to check us out next week, when we'll have fun with paper crafts!
Until then, we wish you a Happy Thanksgiving!
