WEST GREY PUBLIC LIBRARY ALL SET FOR MARCH BREAK
DURHAM, ON (February 14, 2018) March Break offers a great bright spot for students and their families – and the Library is all set for that extra leisure time, partnering with other community champions.
On Friday the 16th , the Durham Branch welcomes the whole family in any time to play a board games. Selections include Catan, Uno, Sorry, Ticket to Ride and other favourites, new and old.
And the week wraps up on Seedy Saturday at the Durham Town Hall, March 17th from 10 to 2 for stories, crafts and seed planting for the whole family.
Most programs need pre-registration. These sessions are all free, unless otherwise noted.
WEST GREY PUBLIC LIBRARY CHANGES
Durham, ON (January 16, 2018) As a result of the West Grey Council 2018 budget allocation, West Grey Public Library must limit its hours of service to the community in 2018. This affects all four branches in the municipality. Regrettably, this follows a successful year of increased patronage and programming, especially demonstrated at the Neustadt and Durham locations. In order to maintain the current level of service with no additional frills, a budget increase of 6.5% was required, an actual cost of $18,204. West Grey Council required a 2% increase, which would not cover current operation costs.
