Check Them Out - Rendez-vous contes
ThisJuly 5 to August 26, 2012
year marks the Bibliothèque Lennoxville Library’s 100th Anniversary, and the LennoxvilleAscot Historical & Museum Society (LAHMS) is joining the celebration! On July 5th, from 5pm to 7pm we will be opening a new exhibit in honour of this occasion:
The public is invited to join us for refreshments during the opening.
Among the books displayed will be ones that readers might have come across in the Library’s collection from the time it opened its doors in 1912, leading up to the end of World War II. The choices range from Children’s books, including classics like and as well as Young adult favorites. The Adult section will showcase both fiction and non-fiction, and a display will be dedicated entirely to Canadiana. The exhibit’s absence
of French titles is due to the fact that the Library only began to collect French language books in the 1970s.
This event precedes another literary event taking place at Uplands the following week. The Bibliothèque Lennoxville Library will host
in the Uplands garden on Thursday, July 12th from 2pm to 4pm. Stop in for an English Tea service and enjoy an array of readings from old classics! Reservations can be made by calling 819-564-0409.
Admission to the Exhibit is FREE. Uplands’ Tea services range from $8.50 to $13.50, but the Readings are free of charge! We hope that you will be among us for these celebrations.
