Hello to all, I am planning programs for the library for the fall and winter and would very much appreciate your input and ideas for ones that might be of interest to those who frequent the Consecon branch of the library.Last year we held a 6 week Conversational Beginner French, held a tablet computer workshop, presented a couple of lectures, etc. Would any of these be of interest this year? Other ideas I have and that I would appreciate input on: – a social justice discussion group (we have this in Picton and it is proving popular, but I think we would do a 6-week session and would need a minimum of 8 participants)- lectures (please supply topics of interest and I will try to find a speaker)- a writing workshop with a published author (maybe over 6 weeks or a weekend?)- documentary film nights (we need a license to show front running films, but many documentaries can be viewed online for free and without copyright infringement) – “how-to” workshops, e.g.: how to crochet, how to take professional quality photos, etc. Please let me know what you think. We are open to all and any ideas, and feel free to pass this along to anyone who you feel may be interested in contributing ideas for the Consecon branch.Thank you and look forward to hearing from you.

Hey Folks~Just a reminder that the herb walks in the County have been going on since June 15. Join us for one of the remaining walks or the Medicine Bag workshop on September 14th. Hope you will be able to join me some time this summer to walk the meadows, forests and roadsides of Prince Edward County. Please register in advance, so that if, for any reason, the walk has to be cancelled, we can let you know. Herbally yours~Sherri
P.S. Please feel free to pass this along to anyone else you think might be interested.
