Pie Daze at the Library!

Until we can all be together again at the Community Center for our annual Thanksgiving Dinner, let's at least enjoy dessert together!  
Please join us at the library on Sunday, November 21, from 3-5 PM (Open House style) for sweet and savoury pie eating, stories that honor the many voices of Thanksgiving, and live music from several of our beloved local musicians. 
Most excitingly, we are hosting a "Not-so-Humble" Pie Bake-Off in several categories (youth and adult) with $50 gift card prizes for your favourite local shops.  
Contact us here to enter!  Great British Bake Off has nothing on Ned!

Library Programs at NES!

Goodness! What a success!

Because this program has been so popular, we'll have to register students on a first come, first served basis. Please visit for more information and registration. We ARE working with the school to add another program for the older kiddos so stay tuned!!
Best for ages 0-2
Wednesdays, 10 - 11 am
As children acquire language skills and concepts, we strive to incorporate those skills and concepts into many fun topics and socially supportive lessons. While we do want our children to be exposed to literacy topics and concepts, it is also very important to understand the developmental milestones our children meet. In addition, we provide time for free play and exploration. This is a holistic approach to educating children in a safe, fun and engaging environment.
Storytime for children ages 2 to 5 years. 
Fridays, 10 - 11 am
This is a fun storytime based around the love of books and leisure. Designed for children who are able to hold focus on a story (at least for a bit!) we will hear some wonderful stories both classic and contemporary, usually outside, weather permitting. This storytime will include an activity or craft, depending on the theme and general capacity of the group. Think of it as a flex session in that we will be adapting to the group and addressing age appropriate skills, interests, and abilities.
