Book Club

Love reading, but stuck in a rut and looking for something new to read? Join our "Better than Therapy" Book Club. We meet on the 1st Friday of each month, normally taking a break over the summer. When we meet back in September, we brainstorm our list for the following months, with each member's input. Books and dates for this year are listed below.

TOPS (Take Off Pounds Sensibly)

TOPS ( Take Off Pounds Sensibly), a weight loss support group, meets every Tuesday in the Tea Room at the Springfield Public Library from 6:30 - 7:30 pm. Weigh-in starts at 6 pm before the meeting. For more information call Judy at (204)-444-4437. TOPS is a non-profit International weight loss organization (see www.tops.org for more detail). If you would like to check out our Chapter, you are welcome to visit a meeting. New members are always welcome!

Knitting Club "Needles in the Stacks"

Needles in the Stacks!

Are you interested in joining a group of Knitting aficionados? Here amongst our stacks, we will be happy to find a spot for you. We have been looking for a "Facilitator" to lead the group, but have heard from a few knitters who would be happy to simply spend time with others, share tips, methods, and enjoy a cuppa, while clicking away.

Please respond by email: and I will put you in contact with others, to determine the best time and day of the week. Thus far, we have two interested parties who are looking to meet during the daytime, weekdays. If this jives with your schedule, we can get started, also forming a second group if the interest is there, for an evening or weekend.

Also: if you have knitting materials that you are not in need of, we welcome donations to allow beginners an opportunity to get started without financial investment, until they are certain they have the desire to continue. Donations can be dropped off anytime, during open hours. Thanks for your consideration!  ( Donna )

Staff Picks

Our staff have been asked to list their favourite movies and books for you to review. Once you find the staff member whose book list most matches yours, take a look for suggestions from them you have yet to read, or movies to watch.
