Tillsonburg Public Library is looking for interested individuals to join our Friends of the Library Group! The role of the Friends is to advocate on behalf of the Library Board for support of the library, to hold special events, to assist staff through the provision of volunteer help, to undertake any approved fundraising projects, and to advise the library board on ways to improve library service to the community.
Currently, the group is meeting monthly as it gets off the ground, and a fairly minimal time commitment is required. If you are interested in supporting and advocating for your local library, we would love to hear from you!
For more information or an application, please contact Sydnie Lane, Branch Supervisor.
Looking for something to do with the kids on the weekends? Stop in on the second Saturday of each month for a family film. Saturday, April 12 features a little pig named Wilbur who befriends a kind spider living in his stall in the barn. The film starts at 1 p.m. and we will have popcorn available – don’t forget your drink! Remember, all kids age 10 and under must have an adult in the library during the film.
April brings the return of laughter yoga. Starting Monday, April 21 at 6:30 p.m. instructor Gail Kavelman is back to lead you in a series of stretches, all while laughing your stress away. If you’re looking for something new, why not try this fun, drop-in program?
