If you hear a hubbub at the Mill Street Park on Tuesday, August 15, don’t worry; it’s just one last hurrah for the TD Summer Reading Club. Starting at 10 am, kids who have been registered in the club this summer will get a chance to participate in drum circles led by William Laurin, who will be providing 25 instruments on which kids can go to town on. Then, at 11 am, Daniel “La Flèche” Richer, Ottawa’s Town Crier, will tell First Nations legends until noon.
Later this year, on Thursday, September 14, the library will be hosting another, entirely different, event. Melanie Willard, professional speaker and author of the book “Dare To Be Raw,” will be giving a talk from 6:30 to 8:00 pm. “Dare To Be Raw” will be available for purchase, as well as signings by the author. Though there is no cost to attend, donations are welcomed. Register at bc-cl.ca/programs-and-activities/adults/adult-registration, by phone, or in person at the Champlain Library.
