Middlesex County Library is excited to welcome you to our 2021 Summer Learning program. Tales and Trails is about celebrating our love of reading and our love of the outdoors. Our hope is to help you rediscover the simple pleasures of both a good book and the wonders of nature.
Join us for a discussion with documentary filmmaker, Andrew Moir about his short film Babe, I Hate to Go. The film follows Delroy, who spends 6 months every year working on a farm in Ontario. Delroy is also keeping a secret from his family - he has cancer. The film will be screened during the session or can be found for free on CBC Gem.
Join us on Zoom for a two-part deep-dive into the many ways you can elevate your salad making. Make your own dressings, discover new flavours and textures, and meet fellow foodies along the way. Each session includes a hands-on component and some supplies will be provided.
Participants will receive a new Kahoot quiz via email each week of the tournament. Scores will be tracked for all 6 quizzes; the top scoring participants will be entered into a prize draw. All participants must be registered prior to July 5, and every participant must register with their own email address. Register on our website.
