By popular demand, rural branches of the library, specifically branches in Ameliasburgh, Consecon, Bloomfield and Milford, will now be open from 4 p.m, to 7 p.m. one day a week beginning May 21.
In Ameliasburgh and Bloomfield, the evening hours will be on Tuesdays and in Consecon and Milford, the evening hours will be on Wednesdays. All other hours remain the same. A full listing of hours is available online on the library website at www.peclibrary.org. As well, printed bookmarks with the new hours listed are available in all branches.
“It is always a challenge to find hours that suit everyone,” says library CEO Barbara Sweet, “but we have been very pleased with the response to our change earlier this year of having all branches opened for a portion of the day from Tuesday to Saturday.”
During the winter, being opened in the evenings has not been successful in the past, according to Sweet, “however, as the weather warms up and daylight hours are longer, we anticipate that the evening hours will be popular.”
The library’s new printed events calendar is now available at all branches of the library, with many events in the evenings as well in the coming weeks.On Tuesday, May 21 at 7 p.m., the Picton branch presents Experience the South of France!
This bilingual talk by Maurice Obonsawin will feature photos and stories of Maurice’s experience during his month long visit to what is “castle, cave and wine country.”
The presentation will be followed by social time with light refreshments and a chance to share travel stories, travel plans or to ask questions. It will also be an opportunity to practice your French if so inclined.
On Wednesday, May 22 at 7 p.m. at the Wellington branch library, George Reid will present First Nations Burial Grounds in our own Backyards. Learn about the technology being used to locate these sacred places in Prince Edward County and the implications of the finds. Admission is $10. This is a fundraising initiative of The Friends of the Wellington Library for the garden maintenance project.
The Friends of the Picton Library are holding a Better Books & Plant sale on Saturday, May 25 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. This year, a plant sale is being added.
This annual May sale features the very best of donated books, with funds raised earmarked for the front entrance improvement project.
With longer daylight hours, all are reminded that the library presents free movie nights at the Ameliasburgh Town Hall on the first Tuesday of each month and at the Wellington branch library the first Wednesday of each month. Snacks are available for purchase at both showings with funds raised helping the library.
On Tuesday, June 4 at 7 p.m., see the acclaimed Lincoln film in Ameliasburgh, and on Wednesday, June 5, the Wellington library will be screening Silver Lining Playbook, also at 7p.m.
A family movie is now being shown the third Saturday of each month at the Ameliasburgh Town Hall at 2 p.m. as well. The selection for June 15 is the modern classic Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.
On June 3, at 5:15 don’t miss the award-winning documentary Revolution being presented in partnership with the Regent Theatre for free. More on this very special event in next week’s column.
For a full line up of events, visit our online calendar at www.peclibrary.org or drop into a branch for a copy of the printed version.
