Exam Week at the Library

Thursday, January 26th,  is the first day of exams for the high school students of Bradford West Gwillimbury and the library is ready to offer some support and encouragement.  We have set aside the Zima Room three afternoons this week to create a study hall in order to offer an ideal environment for quietly studying with a group of friends.  The Zima Room Study Hall will be open on Wednesday from 2:30-6:00 pm, on Thursday from 1:00-6:00 pm and on Friday from 1:00-5:00 pm.

We also have invited volunteers from the St. John’s Ambulance Therapy Dogs Program to stop by and offer some encouragement and stress relief in the form of a fluffy new friend!  Dogs will be on hand on Thursday, Friday, Monday and Tuesday at 10:00 am.  Some of our expected guests include Molly, Kody, Parker, Lexi, Truffle, Luna and Buddy.  Even the names are adorable and likely to make you smile so be sure to stop by for an uplifting visit!

For more information, please contact Jenica for more information at 905-775-3328 x. 6125.
