Tinker Lab: to go

We can’t tinker together right now, but that doesn’t mean the fun has to end! Pick up a grab bag of fun tinkering ideas and activities to do at home.  A new bag will be available each week during our curbside pick-up hours on Tuesday mornings.

to reserve your bag, contact Lisa at lisa@brockvillelibrary.ca or 613-342-3936 ext.6424

Project Bookmark

Everyone needs a reason to smile right now, so this year we are doing something a little different. Instead of holding a contest, we are hoping that you will design some bookmarks for us to share with our library community—we will make copies of your designs and include them in our curbside pick-up packages. Thanks!
