Brrr, social library time

More indoor time in the cooler weather may not mean more solitary moments.

More indoor time in the cooler weather may not mean more solitary moments, as gatherings for the quieter residents kick off by the book shelves.

The Vanderhoof Public Library’s winter gatherings are starting for all ages — including zero.

Every Tuesday until Dec. 8 from 10:30 a.m. to 11:15 a.m., fresh-from-the-womb babies to 35-month-olds can drop in to take their early steps towards loving books through rhymes and songs, along with a snack provided by the library.

Those aged three to five can continue their literacy journey with stories and interactive rhymes every Thursday until Dec. 10 from 10:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m, and parents are welcome to stay.

Girls Book Clubs on Thursdays at 3:30 p.m. will take place from October to March for those who enjoy reading and talking about books — an opportunity to make new friends while sharing ideas on crafts and activities.

Interested participants can register at the library or through phone at 250-567-4060.

Starting on Oct. 1, girls aged eight and nine will meet on the first Thursday of each month.

For ages 10 through 12, the “tweens” club will start on Oct. 8 and continue on the second Thursday of each month.

For teens aged 13 and up, meetings will start on Oct. 15 and happen again on the third Thursday of each month.

Having met for the first time already on Sept. 17, the Adult Book Club continues to welcome drop-ins and takes place from noon to 1:00 p.m. on the third Thursday of each month until May.

In addition to reading, Vanderhoof’s library will host the Stitches Club for the needly ones in town on Wednesdays from noon to 3:00 p.m., starting Oct. 7.

Stitchers are welcome to bring anything including knitting, crochet, needlepoint, cross stitch, embroidery, darning, as well as your lunch.
