Tale Waggin' Tutor

This drop in program is designed for young reluctant readers. Our golden lab friend Mara loves to be petted and read to, she makes no judgements about what you read or how well you read it. Mara will be around all summer on Tuesday mornings alternating between our Lunenburg and Bridgwater Branches, beginning June 3. Drop by and share a story with her.

  • Lunenburg Library - Tuesday, July 29, August 12 & 26, 10:30 am
  • Margaret Hennigar Public Library - Tuesday July 22, August 5 & 19, 10:30 am

Cards and Cardboard

Have you ever wanted to raid a dungeon and steal the treasure? Or maybe rule your own kingdom? What about running a theme park for robots, or saving the world from a deadly epidemic? If you think you can be the next rail baron, master bluffer, or top settler, come test your mettle at the first Cards and Cardboard teen gaming day at the Library! We’ve got a variety of board and card games for you to try, but feel free to bring your favourites too. Just for teens (ages 14-19)!

  • Margaret Hennigar Public Library - Saturday, August 9, 2-5pm
