Family Activities

Join us for a summer full of magic at Westbank Libraries. Programs run from May 28 - July 29. Click here for a printable calendar.

Come join us for our Summer Reading Finale. Pick up your prize, enjoy a Frozy's snowcone, and watch a birds of prey demo by Last Chance Forever at 5:30. 

Week Nine: Cloud Meditation (Mindful Breathing)

Our thoughts are like the clouds, forming, changing, and passing by. Come learn about the power of our breath and how it can help us with distracting and unruly thoughts.

Our final Wednesday performance of the summer will be by The Hideout Theater's The Flying Theater Machine.

Week Eight: Mandala Drawings (Quiet Focus)

Join us for mindful bodies, mindful listening, mindful breathing, followed with mandala colouring. Small movements and gentle concentration of coloring draw us into the present moment and has a calming effect for children. (Adults too!)

Join us at Laura's Library on the third Saturdays of the month to watch family-friendly movies. Bring a pillow & a blanket and we'll provide the freshly popped popcorn!

Week Seven: Mind Jars! (Glitter Globes)

Join us this month and make your own Mind Jar! A Mind Jar is a tool for helping kids (and adults) appreciate mindfulness. Sit with us as we recognize how busy our mind and body can be, until we take some time to be mindful and let our feelings “settle.”
