I am sorry it has been awhile since I posted a post

Hello Everyone,

Long time no post. :)  Lots of things are happening at the Lincoln Public Library.

A belated Happy New Year!  We have started up the Hangout again on Thursdays at the Fleming Branch from 4 - 5pm. This year we are learning coding thanks to Google-CS First! I never have used scratch before and I am learning with our tweens!

Thanks to Margie from the BDSS Library for hosting the Wreck this Journal Club. We had one very dedicated person come out every week. At the end of our session he created a master piece!

Teens programs are on the low down, We are just not getting anybody out these days. but,  our volunteer positions are very popular. I would like to thank all of our volunteers for keeping our collection looking great. Also, thanks for helping out with getting the crafts ready for all our children's programs.

For all the Harry Potter Fans we will be running Harry Potter Night on Thursday February 2 at 6:30 pm. Come dressed as your favourite character.

Do you like colouring? Join our colouring club every Friday afterschool.

Do you have an idea what you would like to teen area to look at the Fleming Branch? If you have a suggestion, please let me know at or call 905-563-7014 ext. 210

It is Friday!

Hello Everyone,

Just checking in!

Thanks to Margie Gortson Vaillancourt Teacher Librarian at BDSS, the Lincoln Public Library will be  running a Wreck this Journal Program at the High school for 4 weeks. Margie is such an inspiration!  :)



Every Thursday at the Fleming Branch we are a program called the Hangout for people in grades 4 to 10. It is an informal drop in program. There is a main activity. Next week, December 1, we will be making sock snowman and drinking hot chocolate.

At the Library we always have volunteer opportunities. Call Margaret at 905-563-7014 for more information.

October 2016 @ the Library

Hello Everyone,

Just letting you know we have things happening this October at the Library. Things you may ask...what things?

We have volunteer opportunities!  Yes you can get community service hours at the Library!

We also have a new program... Hangout @ the Library. On Thursdays you can Hangout in Meeting Room A. I will have a craft or an activity if you want to participate you can, if you don't, you don't have to!

Just so you know that there is Homework Help at Convos in Town at the Conversations Café right here in Beamsville. Thanks to Brad who started this great program. So please check it out!

Right now I am just getting ready for Thanksgiving. I will not be cooking a turkey this year. I will be going to my Sister-in-Law's place. She has been working hard on planning this dinner!

Anybody going to family this weekend for a Thanksgiving Feast or just chilling at home? I can't believe how nice it is today! I hope it lasts for the rest of the weekend. There are so many craft shows on in the Niagara Region. They are so much work. I always feel so bad when it rains because it takes a year of planning....and when it rains.... no one goes... and its disappointing for everyone.  So  on a happier note, it has been a great day and I hope everyone is having a great time!

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

So come on and Hangout at the Library. On Thursday October 20 we will be preparing for the Zombie Apocalypse.

Where did the Summer Go????

Hi Everyone,

I went on my trip to New Brunswick. I was hoping to see a moose and it did not happen... but, I did get to see the Flower Pot Rocks! I also got a chance to go lobster fishing!  The weather was great and I even went swimming in the ocean.

Enough about my trip. What happened during the Summer you may ask? Tons of stuff at the Lincoln Public Library!

We had Mad Science conduct two programs. Astro was great!  I ran the Spa, Harry Potter and Fairy Programs.  We made bath bombs, learned all about spells in the our Orientation to Hogwarts and even created fairy houses and gardens.  Club Rex came and  Alex gave us a chance to explore fossils and more!

It was a whirlwind of activity!

The It's Wild Summer Reading Club Party happened on Tuesday August 16 for all the Reading Club Participants! The Theme Survivor! We had pizza, pop, sundae bar and cake (Thanks to Sarah). We created sharpie tie dye pillow cases(that sorta worked) and completed the scavenger hunt challenge.

We had 22 Teens & Tweens reading all summer long. In total they read 296 books! Well Done!

Wow! As always I am usually busy setting up and running the programs so I don't have many pictures. I am disappointed I did not get any pics of our Final Reading Club Party!

Here are just a few pics thanks to Megan our Summer Student. Without her, there would be no pictures!

This is Megan!
