Easter Holidays – Read-a-thon – Annual General Meeting

Dear CEL Members and Volunteers,

The Easter school holidays run from March 23rd to April 7th. During this time the library will only be open on Friday afternoon April 5th from 2:30-5:30 pm.


We are hosting a Read-a-thon fundraiser where participants collect donations from family and friends in exchange for a commitment to read (or be read to) between April 1-13. Our Read- a-Thon will be based on minutes read per child/family. There are two ways to make a pledge; a flat donation amount or an amount for each minute read. On Saturday, April 13 during opening hours, we will have a pajama storytime for all our participants! You can pick up a packet at the library or print one at home. See the attachments.
