Among the many workshops the Tumbler Ridge Public Library continues to put on, was a Christmas Wrap Workshop on the evening of December 1st. These workshops serve as fund-raising opportunities for the library and often-excellent information for the community.
Expecting to see a slew of people interested in the workshop, there was a minimal turnout. Five people attended the seminar, hosted by Kristen Holmlund, an employee for the library as well as a creatively talented young lady. The cost for the project was a very reasonable at $5 per person.
The group first learned how to make a charming gift box and then moved onto a gift bag. This was a fascinating workshop, fairly easy and appealed to a range of ages. Tumbler Ridge, with its small population compared to larger areas, is extremely fortunate to have such workshops and talented people to coordinate and run them.
Coming up at the library is the Children?s PJ Christmas Party, which will be held on December 13th in the Library at 6:00 pm. Pre-register at the front desk of the library (so the staff can calculate how many gift bags are needed). Santa will be in attendance.
The Tumbler Ridge Annual General Meeting is also planned for early January, 2006. The Library will be nominating a Board of Directors for the upcoming year.
Also coming up in January 2006 is the popular ?Itchy Feet? series.
The Library has purchased 85 new magazine titles, from Better Homes and Gardens to Western Living for Canada which will also be arriving at the library in January. In that range there is an interest for every taste.
Library Christmas hours will be posted within the next few weeks.
Information on future workshops is available at the front desk of the library or by calling 242-4778.
