We hope you’re all enjoying a well-earned reading week at the moment! But we hope you’re not too relaxed to update your calendars for TWO upcoming events that we’d like to let you all know about — both happening next week.
On Wednesday, February 25 (in place of a regular meeting), we will be visiting the children’s area at the Cherryhill branch of the London Public Library (301 Oxford St. W.). We will be meeting outside the mall entrance to the library at 11:00 am. This visit will take place right after a storytime, so we should see lots of families interacting with the library’s materials, and the children’s librarian will be there to show us around and answer any questions you may have. If you have any questions about the Cherryhill library visit, please feel free to email our VP Beth (ecrawle[at]uwo.ca).
On Thursday, February 26, we are co-hosting a skype conversation with children’s book author Helaine Becker with Librarians Without Borders. The talk will take place in room 250 of the Staging Building (next door to the NCB) at 12:15. Helaine is a children’s book author, presenter and performer. She is also an advocate for literacy work. You can visit Helaine’s website to learn more about her, and please let us know if you have any questions for her by emailing them to Kim (kvisser4[at]uwo.ca) or posting them on our Facebook group.
