We had a great turn-out for our handmade card workshop Friday at lunch. We have some very creative Makers. Thanks for sharing your work with us! If you missed the workshop, we still have supplies and instructions available in the Makerspace. When the library reopens after exams, come on down and make a card for your friend’s birthday, for Father’s day, to celebrate Graduation, or just to brighten someone’s day.
See our Makers at work…
Come to the Library this Friday, May 11th at lunch in the Makerspace to learn how to make a hand-made card to celebrate the women who are special in your life.
Bring your lunch. All supplies will be provided and making the card should take about 15 minutes.
Some sample cards…
Want to learn a new skill and get ready for holiday decorating and gifting? Come to the Makerspace Monday Dec. 11 & Thursday Dec. 14th at lunch to learn how to crochet a small Christmas light ornament. No experience needed, just a willingness to learn. We’ll spend the first session learning the basics of crochet while you work to craft your ornament. It’s the perfect thing to personalise a holiday tree or to give to a friend (or teacher) this holiday season.
Team TWS is the winner of the “Bling My Bookcart” contest. Congratulations!!! Please pick up your prizes from the Librarians Wednesday at Lunch.
Check out the bookcarts in the display outside the Library and vote for your favourite! Voting closes November 3rd.
Want an interesting and creative way to organise your tasks and keep track of your life?
Join us for a workshop on how to make a bullet journal. It’s more creative and flexible than just making a list! You can adapt it for your own personal style; make it as fancy or as plain as you want. Bring your own journal/notebook to get started in and something to write with. You can eat your lunch at the workshop.
Where: the library makerspace
When: Monday, October 30th at lunch
Who: You, hopefully

Are you ready for Hallowe’en?

Come to get ideas or figure out how to make your ideas happen. Be resourceful and learn how to use what’s already in your closet (or the closets of your family members), to craft creative and easy costumes.
Tuesday Oct. 24 & Thursday Oct. 26 at Lunch in the Library Makerspace (you can eat during the meeting).

School-wide design challenge
Hey VIkings: Do you want to try your hand at designing and decorating for a usable object? Do you have creative decorating ideas? Join the Bling My Bookcart contest in the library.
Who can participate?
Everyone. We have space for up to six teams of people. Staff & Students welcome.
What is it?
It’s your chance to let your imaginations run wild and decorate one of the library’s rolling book carts. You can use any materials you want and come up with whatever design theme strikes your fancy. Use the variety of supplies that you can find in the Library Makerspace, or bring your own. It’s like putting a Halloween costume on a book cart. The finished carts will be displayed in the big display case outside of the library and the school can vote for their favourite. Yes, there will be prizes. You can see some samples from other competitions by Google image searching ‘decorated library book carts’.
See some examples of decorated bookcarts:
The sign-up and information meeting will take place in the Library at lunch on Thursday, October 19th and the building/decorating will happen from October 24th-27th.
The library, of course. And the finished carts will be displayed in the large display case outside of the library.
Because it’s fun and we want to see your awesome designs. And also: prizes.
Who chooses the winner?
We all do! Blinged carts will be displayed in the big display case in the foyer. Voting will start Oct. 30 and close Nov. 3.
