Are you thinking about buying an iPad and want to learn more about it? Or do you own an iPad and want to put it to better use?  These lessons are designed for beginners and will cover the very basics from what the round button on your iPad does to how you can move or delete an app. Includes a lesson with tips that will help you get the most out of your iPad.  Registration & prepayment is required.  NOTE:  please bring your iPad to each session.

Cook the Books                                                                                          
Begins Thursday, October 4 to Thursday, December 6 at 6:30 p.m.
Get together with your fellow food-enthusiasts and put a cookbook to the test!  A new cookbook will be selected from the library’s collection the first Thursday of the month and you pick a recipe (or two!) to try.  Share your experience with the recipe at the next meeting, such as what worked, what didn’t, a new favourite, etc.

Card Masters
Brechin Branch | Tuesdays 3:30 to 6 p.m.
Kids:  are you a fan of Pokemon, hockey, baseball or other collectible cards?  Why not come and meet other friends to show off your collection, make trades, talk about your favourites, or play a friendly game.  Would you rather play a regular game with a deck of cards?  You are welcome to do that too!

Beat Your Boredom
Brechin Branch | Thursdays 3:30 to 8 p.m.
Join us after school for colouring, board games, computer time, Lego creations and more!

New Scavenger Saturdays @ Your Library
Drop by either branch on Saturdays to pick up a scavenger sheet at the front desk.  Each month you will have fun finding different characters such as Pokémon, Disney Princesses, etc. 

Why not participate in Legomania while you’re there as it is still available at both branches all day on Saturdays as well!
