We get around at the Niagara Falls Public Library

People are busy. We get it. There isn’t always time enough in the week to visit your friendly neighbourhood library, especially during those few precious months of the year when the weather is good and a lot of people would rather be at a park, at the beach or just about anywhere outside.

If the summer heat gets to be too much, the library will always welcome you during operating hours with air conditioning and a quiet place to sit, read, use the internet, learn a new skill or just relax. But knowing that many people, whether because of time or geographical constraints, might not be able to make it to the library, we’re always looking for ways to meet the community outside the four walls of our three branches.

That’s why, with the half of summer that’s left, you can find us at Deerfield Park on Mondays from 2 to 4 p.m., F.H. Leslie Park on Tuesdays from 2 to 4 p.m., Patrick Cummings Memorial Sports Complex on Wednesdays from 2 to 4 p.m., Firemen’s Park on Thursdays from 10 a.m. to noon, Niagara Falls Lions Club Pool on Thursdays from 2 to 4 p.m., Buck Hinsperger Pool on Fridays from 10 a.m. to noon and Prince Charles Park on Fridays from 2 to 4 p.m. This schedule will continue through to Friday, Aug. 18. At our park and pool visits, kids can register for our free Summer Reading Club, redeem points for beads to add to Summer Reading Club necklaces and join in activities for all ages. Please note that in the event of a heat warning, park visits will relocate to the closest library location for the same time slot.

If you’re at the Niagara Falls Farmers Market, you can find us there as well on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. As always, we’re giving away free seeds from our Seed-to-Seed library. Though it’s a little late for vegetables, herbs are still a safe bet. This year at the farmers’ market, we’re also fundraising for the renovation of our Stamford Centre branch with library tote bags available for $5 each, fancy library socks for $20 a pair and donated and discarded books that you can pay for by donation. If you’re feeling adventurous, you could even have a mystery date with a book by purchasing a sealed paper bag with a book inside, the title of which you won’t know until you’ve bought it. Will it be non-fiction? Sci-fi? Suspense? Talk about living on the edge. All proceeds from market sales support the final leg of the Stamford Centre library renovation.

So come find us at a park or the farmer’s market, online at my.nflibrary.ca or at any of our three branch locations. With so many ways to connect with us, we hope to see you before the summer is through.
