First off, thanks to our wonderful Friends of the Library group for their recent book sale – it was a big success, with $1770 raised. A big thank you as well to all of you who came out to buy books, and to those who donated them.

Tech Cafe

We are introducing a brand-new program this month – a weekly, drop-in computer help service. Come by any Tuesday evening (starting November 12) between 6 and 7 pm to receive one-on-one assistance.


Drop by the library on Friday, Nov. 8 from 1 – 3 pm for our second Lego extravaganza! We’ve got big bins full of every piece you could ever hope for. All ages welcome (children under seven must be accompanied by an adult).

NFB Films

Our next movie night is on Thursday, November 14, starting at 6 pm. We’ll kick things off with a short film (Shatner sings O Canada ­– 5 min), followed by our feature presentation (Forces of Nature: The David Suzuki Movie  – 93 min). Popcorn will be served, all ages welcome.

Teen Knitting Club

Back by popular demand – our teen knitting club will be starting up again in the new year. We’d happily welcome any donations of wool that come our way!

Book Club

This month’s book is Old Filth by Jane Gardam. It’s a New York Times Notable Book – a novel about a man who grows up as a Raj orphan.  The Times called it, “beautiful, vivid and defiantly funny.” Come by the library to pick up your copy. New members are always welcome.

Board Meeting

The library board will have its monthly meeting on Wednesday, November 20 at 4 pm at the library. The public is invited to attend.

Computer Workshops

Need help with email? Your digital camera? Facebook? We’ve got a series of computer workshops lined up on November 7-14. Space is limited – please call or visit us for more information and to register. The workshops are held in partnership with the Columbia Basin Alliance for Literacy.

Remembrance Day

The public library will be closed on Saturday, November 9.
