Spring is here; that means it must be tax time. To help ease the stress of tax season the Library is offering free income tax assistance sessions for eligible individuals (modest income and a simple tax situation) on Fridays throughout March and April 12:30-4:30pm This service is provided by the Community Volunteer Income Tax Program which is run in collaboration between community organizations like the Library and the Canada Revenue Agency. Thank you to the dedicated volunteers that annually provide this service for our residents. Appointments are necessary; please drop by the library or call to book your appointment.
Spring also means spring-break for kids. If you are looking for affordable ways (remember it’s always free at the library) to keep your children or grandchildren busy and entertained, the Library has a number of programs and services to help.
The Library held its first coding camp for kids March 13-16 and more than 30 kids attended sessions and learned basic and intermediate computer coding skills. If you missed the coding camps the Library is presenting a free screening of “Moana” on Saturday March 25 at 1pm. Or maybe this spring break you are looking for project ideas for your child or the whole family; don’t forget we have a number of books and magazines that can help you out. If you want to build a tree house or go-cart, learn to knit or bake the best cupcakes, drop by the library and let us help you get started. There are over 40,000 items in the library, including DVDs, CDs, magazines, audiobooks and over 65,000 downloadable eBooks and hundreds of online newspaper and magazine subscriptions for you to explore.
No matter what your plans are this spring consider making the library a regular part of your family routine. It is a great place to get inspired. To sign-up for a library membership all you need is picture identification with your current address.
