Library Corner – Week of November 5, 2018
Remembrance Day November 11th
“Lest We Forget – three words renown across most countries to show our remembrance of those who have fought, and those who have died fighting for freedom. It means that we will never forget. In Canada, we honour the day by wearing poppies, a flower that bloomed throughout the fields of battle grounds in France and Belgium during World War I. The wearing of the symbol of the poppy was made popular due to the poem, Flanders Field, written by Canadian physician and Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae after witnessing his friend and fellow soldier struck down in the midst of battle in WWI.”
Join us for Pyjama Storytime on Thursday, November 15th, 6:30 p.m. to 7:45 p.m. Throw on your PJs, grab your favourite cuddly stuffed animal and join us for an evening storytime at the Library. We will read books, play games, have a snack and do a craft. Free! All ages are welcome!
