Sidney North Saanich Library open house this weekend

Celebrate the season and the good work of the Friends of the Sidney North Saanich Branch of Vancouver Island Regional Library.

SIDNEY — Celebrate the season and the good work of the Friends of the Sidney North Saanich Branch of Vancouver Island Regional Library at an Open House and wreath making event.

On Saturday, Dec. 6, the Friends of the Library will host an Open House from 2 to 3 p.m. at the Sidney North Saanich Library (10091 Resthaven Drive).

Meet the Friends while enjoying refreshments and the music of singer/guitarist Marcelina Stanton who will perform Spanish and Chilean favourites and seasonal songs.

A special holiday wreath making class with Friends of the Library’s Louise Boutin will also be held Dec. 6 from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m.

Make a beautiful and unique wreath from up-cycled discarded books and festive supplies.

Tickets may be purchased at the library. All funds raised support the Sidney North Saanich Library.

The Friends of the Library are keen library supporters who volunteer their time, energy, and ideas to support the library and help make it a great place to be. The Friends hold an annual book sale, host special events, and assist with delivery of library materials to homebound customers.

Funds raised by the Friends enabled the library to purchase an information monitor, literacy kits for preschoolers, colourful and fun furnishings for the children’s area, and more.

The Friends welcome new members and you can learn more about joining the Friends at the Open House, or call the library at 250-656-0944.
