Watch out for all the little ghosts, superheroes and other costumed characters! Join us at the Picton Branch Library for a special edition of our Saturday Storytime on October 29 at 10:30 a.m. Storytime will take place outside, rain or shine ( we’re not afraid of a little rain!) and costumes are encouraged.

We’ll read stories that aren’t too scary, play games and more.

Older kids (8+) are invited to join us at the Wellington Branch Library, starting October 25 on Tuesdays from 4-5 p.m. for a new Maker Club session. We will explore earth science, experience volcanoes, erosion and more. Register by calling Michèle at (613) 399-2023.

In addition to the regular Baby Storytime program on Tuesdays at 10:30 a.m. at the Picton Branch Library, we are thrilled to announce that starting November 2, a new Baby Storytime will begin at the Wellington Branch Library on Wednesdays at 10:30 a.m. Led by Nancy and Maureen, members of the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten committee, this program will include stories and songs, nursery rhymes and more. Everyone is welcome. The 1000 books before kindergarten program invites all children who have not yet started school to take on the challenge of reading 1000 books before starting school. Just as using a Fitbit or other pedometer can encourage you to take a few extra steps, tracking the number of books you read can encourage you to read just one more book before bed! You can sign up to join the program at any library branch and we’ll celebrate with you along the way.

Older children can join the Impressive Reader Society. Every month they are invited to share their reading with us (at any branch of the library) and we will choose a “Most Impressive Reader”. We believe reading is worth celebrating! The “most impressive” reader might be someone, for example, who has read more books than usual, taken on a new challenge, or finished a beloved series.

The library has applied for funding from The Commonwell LEAF program for new furniture for use in the Picton Branch Library’s children’s room when the expansion opens. If you would like to visit their website ( and research our project (you can search for the keyword Picton), you will be given the opportunity to leave a supporting comment.

Taking a moment to share a review will help make our app stronger and it costs you nothing! We know that having a welcoming and fun children’s library can help children learn and use the library for a lifetime.
