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.

Thank you to all of the volunteers and bakers that helped with our Open Day celebrating the works of Roald Dahl. It was a fun and successful day. Photos can be found here.

We wish you all a safe holiday and happy reading.

A successful book drive!

Dear CEL families and volunteers,

It was a big and successful book drive this year! 769 books and 80 mini pixie books have been delivered to 5 different organizations supporting children and mothers. 📚❤️🎄

As with the previous years, the directors of these organizations were so happy and grateful to receive all of these beautiful books.

Thank you to everyone that donated books and helped to spread the word.

Thank you all for helping us to do something good for children in our community in honor and memory of Henry. ❤️

Best wishes,
The CEL Board
