November seems to be the time of year for slowing down; maybe a bit of reflective reading or plenty of binge watching! However you like to start hibernating, we’ve got you covered. All November and December we are amping up our number of eBooks and eAudiobooks with Hoopla. We’ve also got more eAudiobooks on Overdrive, just for Rideau Lakes Public Library members. Or take out one of our fabulous DVD series when the weather turns.
We all need Friends! Everyone is welcome at the table at the Friends of the Rideau Lakes Public Library Annual General Meeting, Thursday November 14th 11am-12pm at the Portland branch.
