Gentle Reminder

We love that our story room gets used by kids and families.  We love that all the toys and games we stock are fun for you to play with.   Thank you to the many, many people that use the room conscientiously.

But someone left this mess for us to clean up.  That’s not nice.  So here’s a reminder to please think of others and try to leave the room as you found it.

Also, please be sure that you’re not accidentally taking home anything that belongs to the library.  We’ve recently lost a Kermit the Frog and some dinosaur figurines, for example.  If you find them among your toys, please send them home.  We promise to ask no questions.

Thank you, Snowizards!

Big thanks to the Lonsdale Snowizards Snowmobile Club for their generous donation to our children’s programming.  We will soon have a new kids’ size craft table and chairs to enhance our storytimes, hands-on science and other fun activities for young people.  Also, keep your eyes peeled for upcoming movie programs, since the Snowizards sponsored a public performance license, alllowing us to legally show all sorts of movies for kids and adults, alike!
