September 28, 2017: Rosemount Library;
Fall Activities.

By Jennifer Johnson, Supervising Librarian.

As the season changes, and school resumes, the Rosemount library continues to be a gathering place and service hub for the community.

Programs for the very young started a new fall schedule the week of September 12th, including;

  • “Toddlertime”on Tuesdays at 10:15 a.m.;
  • “Family Storytime” on Wednesday at 10:15 a.m.; and
  • “Babytime” on Thursdays at 10:15 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.

Saturdays will host an exciting, new format of Family Storytime, “Stay and Play.”
Stories will be part of a welcoming morning, where families can enjoy playing and visiting together, starting at 10:00 a.m.

For adults, the English Conversation Circle resumed Wednesdays starting September 20th, from 7:00-8:00 p.m. Volunteers are available to share a friendly, relaxed learning experience with adult language learners.
All these programs are free drop-in.

The Rosemount branch continues to support all learners with Wifi access, public computers with printer, and a fleet of Chromebooks for borrowing within the branch. Books and magazines are always available in the branch, and if your interests range more widely, materials can be put on hold and transferred to Rosemount from other libraries with larger collections for reading pleasure and learning.

As part of the OPL 150 events, Rosemount will host a special program on Saturday October 28th, called “Haunted Library”. Planning is underway for a storyteller, a monster program, and the chance to create a memorable photo moment. Watch for more details on this special event.

Rosemount Library, is at 18 Rosemount Ave. Contact: rosemount@biblioottawalibrary.ca .
