Starting next week in the library at lunch, you can learn to make all kinds of treasures! We will have weekly drop-in craft stations set up, as well as workshops by Maker Club and Ms Anklesaria. Check out the schedule below.
October is presenting all kinds of opportunities for young writers. Right here in our own library, we’ve got the Library Scary Short Story contest — submit your 500-word story by October 24th to win candy and Stephen King books!
Also in our library, author Don Aker is coming to visit on October 30th. The author of The First Stone, The Fifth Rule, and Running on Empty has great advice for aspiring writers. See your librarian about getting a pass to this event.
Finally, the Toronto Public Library is hosting its annual Young Writers’ Conference — an excellent (and free!) chance for you to learn from other writers and workshop your own writing. Find out more here.
Sign up to perform, bake cookies to contribute, or just plan to come on down to the library on December 17th at lunch to enjoy an MPC holiday tradition: live music and great treats at our annual coffeehouse! Admission is $2 and all proceeds go to the Library Teaching Garden.
This week is Local Government Week — a time for us to be aware of just how much of our lives is affected by the government we have closest to home: our services, our parks, our safety are all reliant on it! Check out this website for more information.
