Off the Shelf Library News - November 2015

Originally published in the Seaway News Volume 30, Issue 9

Let’s talk November!  November has it tough – it’s easily forgotten between the beauty of the changing colours in October and the preparation for the holidays in December.  It’s a dreary month, one that sees shorter daylight hours, colder temperatures, and let’s not forget all that yard work we have to get done before the snow. 

But what about the silver linings?  At the Library, we see this month as the perfect time to get caught up on some of those guilty pleasures we’ve been putting off all summer.  It’s time to go inside early, stay warm with a good book, or binge on a television show. 

Or perhaps you’re looking for something with more involvement?  With Remembrance Day commemorations, our Food for Fines campaign, and National Day of the Child celebrations, the Library provides lots of opportunities to connect with your community.  During this cold and gray month, why not take advantage of our spaces as gathering places to share in some community activities with your neighbours and friends?

Sure, October was exciting with the Federal election and the Jays making the playoffs - but let’s not forget the beauty and fun that can be found in November.  Look beyond the falling leaves and hardening ground, and take this opportunity to connect with each other.  You may be surprised what you discover!
