Library showcases a mix of learning activities

Embrace the fall season with exciting programs at Whitchurch-Stouffville Public Library.

As the air turns crisp and leaves begin their colourful transformation, the library will be ready to welcome the community to its array of fall programs. From the young to the young at heart, there’s something for everyone this season.

For those looking to enhance their wellness with their little ones, the library is offering an Infant Massage program in partnership with EarlyON. This program promotes nurturing touch and communication, teaching parents how to massage their babies. It’s a wonderful opportunity to bond with your infant and meet other parents in the community.

For school-aged patrons, the Math Grade 1 program will reinforce what is being learned in Grade 1 to strengthen your child’s numeracy skills. It’s a great way to support your child’s learning outside of the classroom.

The Maker Festival is a fantastic opportunity to discover new technologies, get creative with free activities, and meet local makers, artists, hobbyists, and innovators. The event takes place Sept. 23 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The library team will partner with the Whitchurch-Stouffville Museum to offer a series of events centred around the Jean-Baptiste Lainé Site. Join archaeologist Dr. Ron Williamson as he describes the site and its significance. Later in the month, join a guided tour from the library to the archaeological site, where you can engage in an immersive self-guided tour using informative interpretive signage.

Are you interested in local history, or eager to learn more about the history of your property in Whitchurch-Stouffville or the surrounding area? Every Tuesday at the library, the Historian-in-Residence will be available to talk and help bring light to your questions, help you use the resources available at the library and can advise about resources that are available throughout the region.
