Spring is finally here and the Champlain Library has many ways to welcome it. From its latest books and magazines to its collection of newly-released DVDs, there is something for all ages to celebrate the arrival of spring, says library staff. The brightly-coloured displays around the library and the spring programs that are offered remind us that we are near the end of a long winter.

On Monday, April 1 at 7 p.m., bird enthusiasts can make a birdfeeder out of a plastic pop bottle at the library’s adult spring craft event. Space is limited, so be sure to call the library to reserve a spot. April is National Poetry month and local authors Susan Jephcott, Samme Putzel and Doreen Russell will be reading excerpts from their books on Wednesday, April 10 at 1:30 p.m. at the library.  Space is limited so register in advance.  Storytime continues for preschoolers at 10 a.m. every Tuesday morning where stories and crafts are geared towards the new season and kids can spring into reading and activities every Thursday after school.
