West Grey Library marks Public Library Month with program variety

West Grey Public Library October calendar

October is Canadian Library Month and the West Grey Library wants everyone to have a reason to drop in.

On Wednesday, October 4 at 2:30pm at Durham Branch, the Library presents Fraud for Seniors (and everyone else) with a volunteer from the Canadian Anti-fraud Centre. In 2019, one in six (17%) or over five million people reported that they had been a victim of fraud in the previous five years. In total, the losses suffered by all fraud victims topped $16 billion in five years. With scams becoming more sophisticated and difficult to detect, everyone can benefit from this one-hour session. No charge.

Later on October 4, join Tim for the second in the History of Games series, this one on cribbage, which was invented in the 1600s. There will be food from the period, a brief presentation on cribbage’s history and then a chance to learn or refresh your skills. Materials fee $5.

To calm back down, join Alison for meditation on most Saturdays in October (14, 21, 28) at 10:30 am at Durham Branch. Alison has international qualifications but she believes that ‘if you can breathe, you can meditate,’ and has helped a lot of West Grey residents get there. No charge.

And if you want to sharpen your presentation skills, join Kimm for Making Great Presentations on Thursday, Oct 12 at 4:30pm. Great for high school students or business owners, anyone who wants to take the fear out of presenting in front of others. No charge.

Unless otherwise indicated, all sessions are free of charge, but pre-registration is required at or by calling 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.

Please consider supporting South Grey News with a donation in lieu of a subscription fee and let us know that our efforts are appreciated. Thank you.
