West Grey Public Library programs hit the spot

The moss bag has been used by Indigenous Peoples to keep a baby snugly wrapped, creating a warm, womb-like environment that makes the baby feel safe and sleep better.

There’s so much to learn and the West Grey Public Library offers bite-sized learning everyone can enjoy this winter.

Biindigin (‘come in’) is an Indigenous series; in this session on Saturday, January 21 at 10:30 am, Durham Branch, participants take on Welcoming and Educating the Child. Metis workshop leader Diane Owen explains about moss bags and dreamcatchers. Participants will make a dreamcatcher. You don’t have to have attended the previous sessions, but space is limited, so be sure to register. $15 materials fee; bring a small, meaningful object to be woven into your dreamcatcher.

Kombucha? You Betcha! is a one-hour session for those who are interested in making their own healthful fizzy drink. Luke takes participants through the process. Bring a clean jar and a $2 materials fee, and you’ll go home with your own sample. Pre-registration required.

And on Thursday, January 26 at 2 pm, the Library is marking Alzheimer Month with Filling the Day with Meaning for caregivers and others living with an individual with dementia, presented by Sandra Hong of the Alzheimer Society of Grey Bruce. As with all other programs, there is no charge to attend, but pre-registration is required at or 519-369-2107.


At South Grey News, we endeavour to bring you truthful and factual, up-to-date local community news in a quick and easy-to-digest format that’s free of political bias. We believe this service is more important today than ever before, as social media has given rise to misinformation, largely unchecked by big corporations who put profits ahead of their responsibilities.

South Grey News does not have the resources of a big corporation. We are a small, locally owned-and-operated organization. Research, analysis and physical attendance at public meetings and community events requires considerable effort. But contributions from readers and advertisers, however big or small, go a long way to helping us deliver positive, open and honest journalism for this community.
