As everyone is settling into the New Year, at the library we have been getting ready for a year full of fun programs and events. We are excited to be offering some new programs, along with ones that we have previously held. Here are just a few of the programs and events that we will be offering over the next few months. 
Storytime has made its return in the New Year. Storytime is a program for pre-school aged children, where they can join us to read along with some of the great children’s books we have here at the library. After the stories are finished there is craft time, where you can make a fun and easy craft to take home. Story­time takes place every Thurs­day at 10:00 a.m. for the remainder of the school year. 
As a part of the new programs we will be offering at the library, we are putting on two book clubs, one for youth ages 9-12 and the other for teens 13 and up. The youth book club will be reading The Blackthorn Key, and the teen book club will be reading Turtles All The Way Down. Each club will meet for an hour to discuss the book and partake in an activity related to the reading. The youth book club will meet on February 19, and the teen book club will meet on February 20. Both clubs will take place from 3:45 – 4:45 p.m. Regis­tration for these book clubs is now open, and copies of both books can be picked up at the library. 
Another program we are holding at the library is a youth drawing class. The program is in partnership with the Carberry Arts Coun­cil. The class will take place over spring break, March 26th – 30th from 2 - 3 p.m. The program is free to enter and open to ages 11 and up. Registration for this event is now open, and you can sign up by contacting us at the library. 
Also new to the library is Tabletop Game Day. On Satur­day, January 26 from 1:00 – 4:30 p.m., join us at the library to take part in all kinds of tabletop gaming fun. We will have a collection of games available for anyone to come and play. There will also be a game of Dungeons and Dragons that anyone is welcome to join, whether you are a rookie adventurer or ex­perien­­ced role-player. Also, feel free to bring your own tabletop game to play, anything from Monopoly to Magic the Gathering. No registration for this event is required, it is simply drop in and play! 
If you are looking to build your book collection at home, we will be having a major book sale in February! Star­ting on Tuesday, Feb­ruary 5, and going until Friday, February 15, you can come down to the library and check out some of the great books we will have on sale. During the second week of the sale, books will be priced by the bag! This is a great opportunity to get some new reading material and support your local library.
We are happy to be providing a wide variety of events and programming for all ages at the library, all of which are free to enter. If you are interested in registering for any of these programs, or just have further inquiries, please feel free to contact us at the library; 834-3043 or Carson@wmrl.ca, we would be happy to answer any questions you have!
