September at Bruce County Public Library

As everyone prepares for fall and kids to return to school, Bruce County Public Library Branches have released their September program schedules, featuring exciting activities and programs for every age. 

September is for celebrating Culture Days! Bruce County Public Library Branches are bringing back their wildly popular ‘Tiny Art Projects’ to celebrate. Culture Days are a national celebration of arts and culture in Canada, aiming to remove the barriers and create free opportunities for the public to participate in arts and cultural experiences. Join fellow artists to create your piece of tiny art. You may choose for your art to be part of our travelling Tiny Art Show from September 23 to October 16. Visit the Library event page to find out when your local branch will host its Tiny Art Projects program. 

Science literacy week will be taking place from September 19 to 25. This year’s theme is Mathematics. Stop by any branch to pick up a package containing a take-home activity.  

Bruce County Public Library’s 3D printers will finish their time at the Southampton, Tara, and Sauble Beach Branches before moving in October.  Each branch will be holding programs to help patrons get familiar with 3D printing.

After School Club is returning to Tara and Chesley on Tuesdays at 3:30pm and will be a brand new program Mildmay this year. This drop-in program is suitable for ages 5-12.

September will be closing out by recognizing Truth and Reconciliation Day. The Library honours First Nations, Inuit and Métis Residential School survivors. Share your expressions of support and learn about the Calls to Action with our in-branch activity this week. Join Priscilla Yellowhead at the Tobermory Branch at 1:30pm for a story telling and drumming ceremony. Please stop by the Truth and Reconciliation displays at each branch to learn more about this important day. 

There are many ways to stay updated on what is happening at your local branch. Bruce County Public Library posts daily on its Facebook and Instagram stories and sends out a monthly newsletter, or you can visit their always current events page.
