The Nelson Library’s Slocan Valley Outreach

Each month the Nelson Public Library goes mobile, bringing two separate programs to Slocan Park Hall: a roving collection of items to borrow for adults, and drop-in storytimes for kids.

Circulation Services Coordinator Heather Goldik brings a selection of books, audiobooks, CDs and DVDs on the third Tuesday of each month (during Adult Drop-in Coffee Time). Folks can drop in to borrow items, register for a card, learn about the Library’s online resources, and find out about downloading eBooks and eAudiobooks. Upcoming dates are January 16, February 20, and March 20 from 10am to noon.

Children’s Librarian Avi Silberstein comes to Slocan Park Hall once a month during Parent & Tot Drop-in, offering a fun, free storytime for kids 0 to five years. Avi (with his special green guitar) brings stories, songs, and rhymes, as well as a selection of books for young children. Avi will be at Parent & Tot Drop-in on Fridays January 19, February 16, and March 16, all at 10am.

The Nelson Public Library’s Slocan Valley Outreach programs are a partnership between the Library and the Slocan Valley Recreation Society.
