Children are having fun at the library this summer
Once again this year, we are pleased to be able to offer children in the region several amusing, bilingual activities for free from July 2 to August 17.
At the Book Club, passions are pursued
Starting on July 2, at 6:30 p.m. on Monday of every week, members of the Club meet at the library to discuss what they have read with our activity leader and participate in a fun activity related to this year's theme "Pursue your passions". Club members will receive a booklet to fill in, with the chance of winning amusing prizes. Activities will close with a party on August 13.
A fun story hour
Sometimes in pyjamas, sometimes with fathers and grandparents, sometimes on Saturday mornings and sometimes in the early evening, story hour is followed by an enjoyable activity for children 3 years-old and up. The dates will be posted on our website.
This summer our books will make trips
This summer, our activity leader will set up in several public places with a backpack filled with books. She will read stories for the little ones, or older children can read a book themselves. Locations and dates will be posted on our website.
The Town of Huntingdon Day Camp at the library
We will receive children from the Huntingdon Day Camp on Friday mornings from July 6 to August 17. Amusing activities involving books and reading will be on hand.
Several other activities will also be available: board games for 8 year-olds and older, an afternoon cinema for the entire family and an introduction to reading with a tablet or e-reader for children.
Volunteers needed for the mobile library service for day-care centres
We are looking for volunteers who would like to participate in our mobile library service, from September to June, taking books to the children in family day-care centres in the Haut-Saint Laurent. The ideal volunteer enjoys the contacts with young children, has a vehicle to go to the centres and can offer approximately seven hours each month to make the visits and prepare for them. Those interested must obtain a proof of lack of impediment - verification of the judicial record from the Sureté du Québec. The work will begin this September, but applying for this document may take several weeks.
The Little Green Library has already been offering this service for several years thanks to a team of three volunteers who serve some 12 day-care centres. We now need three more volunteers in order to offer the service to new centres which have made a request.
Manon Gauthier's paintings at the library
A photographer by training, Manon Gauthier merges photographs with acrylic and other mediums to take them to another level of interpretation and, at times, to tell a different story. Ms Gauthier loves trying new things, exploring different forms of art and techniques, retrieving objects and giving them a second life.
Last September, she learned the techniques and manipulations of Paverpol with the artist, Louise Proulx. She adored it! This led to her first creation at the exhibition contest, Valedar, with the theme "Movement". Imagine her immense surprise when she won second prize as non-professional sculptor. A prize which increased her enthusiasm and motivation to create other sculptures.
