Library brings services to NOTL parks on Thursdays all summer

The library hit the road on Thursday for its first Power Off and Play: On the Road, this one at Chautauqua Park.

The free program, which invites residents to visit local parks for interactive activities and story time hosted by the NOTL Public Library, is an initiative created to bridge the gap between the varied neighbourhoods of town.

Kasia Dupuis, the children’s library services associate with Sarah Bowers, library staff, brought library services to the first of seven community parks across town on Thursday. Each week at 2:30 p.m., library staff will meet at a different location for an hour of art, reading and “good old-fashioned outside summer fun,” as promised in the library’s summer programming pamphlet.

Dupuis said she was happy with the turnout for the kick-off event. Between 10 to 15 kids came out, and Dupuis said it seemed like they were all having a good time.

“We’re happy to be able to bring the library services out to people who may not be able to make it to the library,” she said.

The next Power Off and Play: On the Road will be held at the Nagara-on-the-Green Park on July 11 at 2:30 p.m.

For future dates and cancellations, check the library’s website.
