The Princeton branch of the Okanagan Regional Library has become a community centre of sorts.
As well as borrowing books and movies, or using the computers for school work or research, residents gather at the library to work on puzzles, sit and read by the fireplace or to socialize.
The preschool story program for kids aged two to five that began in March is still going strong. Assistant community librarian Neil Anderson entertains the little ones with stories, interactive activities songs and crafts.
There are only two more sessions left in the spring program. Wednesday April 23 and 30 from 1 – 2 p.m. Watch for future program announcements, including Lego Night—coming soon.
On Wednesdays in July from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., children from ages five to 12 are welcome to enjoy Summer Reading Club.
Summer Reading Club gives kids the opportunity to hear from some great guest speakers, participate in storytime and crafts as well as have the chance to win book draws and contests.
