Barriere Library welcomes local youngsters to “come on in”

The Thompson Nicola Regional District in Barriere not only has an extensive supply of reading materials available, but at this time it also features several fun programs for kids, including babies and toddlers with their caregivers. These activities can also be of interest to others who may like to stop in for some interesting activities before returning home.

Librarian Pam Rudd has created programs for the little ones that are not only fun to do but also teaches some simple skills.

Every Tuesday at the Library is the time for ‘Tiny Tunes’ running until Feb. 19, from 11 – 11:30 a.m. The ‘After School Club’ is open to children after school until March 6 from 3 – 4:30 p.m. Kids can drop in and enjoy fun activities such as games, crafts, puzzles, book sharing. They will become familiar with the Library and have a chance to relax after school with some of their friends.

Saturdays from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. is the time for children and all those who love Lego to come in and give their imagination free run building whatever comes to their mind. It is easy to see that the children who take part in these group activities enjoy what they are doing, as you see their enthusiasm and happy smiling faces while spending time together.
