Spring Arrives at the CM Libraries!

Growing seeds is the current Story Time theme at the CM Libraries.

Now that the weather is starting to get warmer, it’s time to start thinking about Spring Programming!

Our Sensory Bins are continuing to run on Wednesdays, with an emphasis on hands-on Spring learning. Our Children’s Storytime on Tuesdays and Fridays will also focus on Spring and the new beginnings that come from warmer weather. We are continuing to host once a month Saturday morning and Tuesday evening Storytimes at the Bruce Johnston Branch. Have a look at our newsletter for more information regarding dates and times.

Stop by the Bruce Johnston Branch to see how our Storytime plants are faring! Both of our Storytimes (Children’s Storytime and Adult Storytime) have been learning how to grow seeds and what is needed to take care of them. Some of the plants (such as Sweet Pea) are growing quickly while others (such as Wildflowers) need a bit more time.

Our Adult Storytime is growing (just like our plants)! We will be hosting another Adult Storytime at the Millbrook Branch on Wednesdays at 1:00pm for anyone with a physical or developmental disability who would be interested in listening to a story. If you know anyone who would be interested, please let library staff know or email Courtney at tutor@cmlibraries.ca.

Some of our regular programming includes Toonie Tuesday Movies (“The Menu” on May 9th  and Three Thousand Years of Longing on June 13th) which are starting to incorporate popcorn again! Speaking of food…does anyone want to join our Cookbook Book Club? Not only do we discuss food, but we eat it, too! May’s theme is weird and wonderful recipes that make you wonder if they will turn out good at all…. check out our newsletter for more information!

Join us for “Coffee and Conversation” every week, which will now include a “Catalogue of People” once a month. On the 2nd Wednesday of each month, stop by to see who our guest speaker is going to be. In May, we will be having Shawna stop by from the Humane Society to discuss their new building! June’s guest will be members of the Millbrook and Cavan Historical Society and July’s guest will be Rob Hiseler who will be returning to discuss legal topics.

We are continuing to get out into the community by going to Centennial Place every other Friday for Adult Storytime. If you know of an organization that could benefit from a Storytime, or other activities hosted by the library, please talk to library staff or email Courtney at tutor@cmlibraries.ca.
