There is excitement building around the Invermere Public Library as the holiday season approaches.

There is excitement building around the Invermere Public Library as the holiday season approaches.

Just in time for Christmas, we are adding something new to our Adopt A Book program. Adoptees will be able to choose which title they would like to adopt from a list of books that will arrive over the next few months.

For a complete list of the books that have been pre-ordered for winter 2013-2014, please visit our website at and click on the “Adopt A (particular!) Book Program” link on the left-hand side of the page.

Have someone who is hard to buy for on your Christmas list? Adopt A Book may be just what you are looking for!

The annual Friends of the Library Christmas Silent Auction begins on Saturday, November 23rd and gets underway with a bake sale. The Friends have been busy collecting donations for this very popular event and expect to have more than 100 items to bid on this year.

From baskets of books to golf passes, from kitchen items to board games, and everything in between, the auction always has something for everyone. The auction is another great way to check items off of your Christmas shopping list.

Bidding will end on Saturday, December 7th, so be sure to stop by and support the Friends of the Library. All proceeds go towards programming and services at the library.

On Wednesday, November 27th, adult craft enthusiasts are invited to a Christmas Craft Night at the library from 6 to 8 p.m.

Each participant will go home with a unique Christmas craft of their own. All supplies will be provided and there is no charge for the evening.

Space is limited to 20 people, so please contact the library to pre-register. This event is for adults only.

Families are invited to join us at the library on Wednesday, December 4th at 6 p.m. for our Christmas P.J. Story Time and some holiday cheer. Join us for stories, songs, and some family crafting time. Come dressed in your favourite Christmas pajamas!

We will also have some hot chocolate and Christmas treats to share. This is a drop-in event and is free of charge. Contact us for more information.

And if that wasn’t enough, the Invermere Public Library is participating in this year’s Christmas Light-Up festivities. Drop by to see our entry in the window display

competition and watch for us in the Santa Claus Parade. We look forward to seeing you over the holiday season! Please note that the library will be closed from December 24th through January 1st, so be sure to stock up on your holiday reading ahead of time!

Please note our new email address: .
