Government Printer Peeks: November ed.

This time of year, many of the reports released by government departments and agencies are their annual performance reviews and summaries of accomplishments.

Wondering about alternative ways of paying for online purchases?  The Bank of Canada Continue Reading...

Saturday Crafternoon: November 22

Please join us at the Central library for one of my favourite upcycling crafts! We’ll be using recycled materials to make water bottle snowmen. We had a blast making them last year and I’m happy to be able to post a craft made by one of last year’s participants. Crafts involving recycled materials are a great way to teach children about conservation and to emphasize the importance of preserving our resources. The kids always out-do me with their creativity and I’m glad to be able to give Continue Reading...

‘Tis the Season to give Tech Toys

Once upon a time, long long ago, in a pre-texting era, a friend of mine called me up and said, “We’re going shopping tonight – I’ll pick you up at 2:30 a.m., OK?” Given that we were actually taking and not texting, I couldn’t just reply with a standard wide-eyed Emoji.

Whether you’ll be Continue Reading...

Afternoon tea gets “Rave Reviews”

Central Library’s Rave Reviews program was treated to a special tea service earlier this month. While staff usually provides simple tea and store-bought cookies for this monthly book chat, we were excited to have November’s meeting catered by the Union Jack Tea Room, a local pop-up tea service that specializes in traditional British afternoon teas.  In addition to two types of tea, there were mouth-watering scones, jam, clotted cream, lemon meringue tartlets, jam-filled shortbread biscuits and more, all served up on vintage china. We’d like to Continue Reading...

What WPL is Reading: November

The beautiful fall days are great for getting outside and enjoying the colours. Windsor is beautiful this time of year, but as it starts to rain and get colder I’m finding more time to read. This month, your friends at WPL have gone through some pretty excellent reads and as always we are happy to share. Especially now that we are seeing snow, we’re in a great time of year to relax and read before we hit the hubbub of the holidays. So read on and Continue Reading...
