Libraries mark 75th anniversary of WWII victory
If you are looking for something new and different to do to observe Remembrance Day this year, please visit your favourite branch of the Clearview Public Library to view our very special display to honour our veterans especially for the 75th anniversary of the ending of The Second World War. Take a moment to sign a postcard for our Memorial Guest Book in respect and to recognize your relatives’ contributions to keep Canada “strong and free.”
As the nights grow longer and the days grow colder, the development of our boredom buster ideas is becoming more important as these stimuli are intended to distract and entertain your family as the second wave of C-19 starts to sweep through Clearview. Your friendly library staff will keep developing fresh inspiration all November long as we head into the winter doldrums. Our children’s programs are up and running now in cyberspace. Details for 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten (0-4 years), Kids At Play/KAP (5-7 years) and After School Klub/ASK (8-10 years) are available at www.clearviewpl.readsquared.com. Library Time is available every Wednesday at 10 a.m. on our Facebook too. Our teen librarian is hosting the Girls Who Code program on Zoom every Tuesday at 4:30 p.m. and is organizing the guests for the CPL Youth Crew Guest Speaker Series. She is also creating the DIY Kits To Go which are available on the first and third Wednesday of each month for the Fall/Winter. Please register on Event Keeper at www.clearview.library.on.ca, through READsquared or in person at the circulation desk. New for November will be the Library Nights and Monthly Challenges in partnership with the Clearview Youth Centre in Stayner.
Our Virtual Book Club, Adult Card Club and Reading Room are always welcoming new members. For details, visit the website above or call the Creemore Branch (705-466-3011), the New Lowell Branch (705-424-6288) or the Stayner Branch (705-428-3595) for assistance. Take note that all the seasonal holiday releases are arriving daily and that there are wonderful new books on our shelves for your enjoyment. Our digital collection of e-books, e-magazines, audiobooks, databases and more continues to expand with more resources for your edu-entertainment.
As for Christmas and the cookie baking season, the library staff are welcoming the arrival of Santa Claus who will be making his annual holiday visit “at a socially safe distance” next door at the Creemore Log Cabin on Saturday, Dec. 5.
We will be open at this time too although with limited capacity. See you then if not before!
Michele McKenzie is deputy CEO of Clearview Public Library.
