Christmas Cheer at the Petawawa Public Library

Join us at the Petawawa Public Library on December 15th from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. for a merry afternoon of live Christmas music by local musician Amy Clarke, free Christmas treats, hot cocoa, a Cookie Swap and Storytime by the fireplace with a surprise visit from a very special guest from the North Pole, Santa Claus!
The library is also hosting our annual Christmas Cheer Tree Festival throughout the month of December so stop by to view the beautifully decorated trees lining our hallway designed by local non-profits, community organizations and schools. The community can vote for their favourite tree, and the winner will receive a $100 prize towards their organization.
For more information, please contact Erika at (613) 687-2227 ext.30
or by email to erika.malins@gmail.com

Planning to enjoy the great outdoors at Centennial Park with your family this fall?  Why not combine your visit with a great family-fun storybook too? 
The Petawawa Public Library has teamed up with the Civic Centre to offer the new “Storytime Trail” to the public.  As you wander along the walking trail at Centennial Park, watch for the specially marked sign posts along the way and enjoy the first six pages of the selected story.

Wondering what happens next?  To finish the story, visit the library and follow the footprints to find and read the book on display, or watch and listen to it online by visiting our website at petawawapubliclibrary.ca.  Just click  the TumbleBooks icon on our main page and enter the book’s title in the search box.

We will update Storytime Trail a few times a year with a new story. If you and your family enjoy the TumbleBooks experience, check out some of the other storybooks, read alongs and games available on the site.



Older readers can give TumbleBookCloud a try for ebooks and read-along chapter books, graphic novels, educational videos, and audio books.  Enjoy!
