Important Information

Wakefield Library is taking first steps to resume some kind of service while conforming to pandemic rules and regulations. To begin this process, we ask all our clients to return their books to the drop box at the library. We will clean them and restock the shelves.
By mid-June, we hope to be accepting book orders by email and phone message. These books will be put into envelopes for you to pick up. More details will follow in the days to come.
Please be patient – we are getting there.

Sightings, the poetry and music concert scheduled at the Biblio Wakefield Library for March 29th, has been postponed and will be rescheduled once we are through this crisis.  In the meantime, a poem excerpt for these times…

how often we feel we’re being watched over,
or that we’re secretly looking in on the ones
we love, even when they are far away…

—what we know
and what we feel can fully coincide, like love
and worry, like taking care in full silence
and secrecy, like darkness and light together.

~ from Listening for Your Name by David Graham

Write Night

Third Wednesday of the Month

A message from Linda Vanderlee:

I’m sure you are all well aware that we won’t be meeting at the Library this Wednesday for Write Night. 
However I encourage us all to set our timers (5 – 10 minutes) for a few rounds of prompt writing at some point this week. (Maybe invite your kids, partners and neighbours to join you…a good distance apart or online of course!)
Post your prompt (a word, theme, sentence stem, picture) on our Facebook page. We can each choose what moves us or mix and match.

Creative Writing Wakefield – La Peche Facebook page

Share your words there if you feel comfortable doing so or keep them until we meet next time. Here are some sentence stems to start us off (or come up with your own) : 

I remember when I thought freedom was…

The best part of staying home is… 

It’s day 13 of this self isolation thing….

The Wakefield Library, in cooperation with the WAY, is starting up the local chapter of Girls Who Code. This will be an all female environment and we are looking for girls between 11 and 14 years old. Club membership and meetings are sponsored by The WAY and the Wakefield Library. If you are interested, please send an email to claus@jobescanada.com and include your name, address, phone number and age. It would also be very helpful to give us an idea about your interest and if you have coding experience.

Girls Who Code is an international organization with the goal to close the gender gap in technology. The non-profit organization has reached 185,000 girls across Canada and the USA inspiring, educating, teaching computing skills and increasing female participation in STEM degrees and job sector. They have also national chapters in the UK and India.
