On behalf of the board and staff of the Temiskaming Shores Public Library, I would like to welcome everyone to our new space at 285 Whitewood Ave. West in Temiskaming Shores. It has been a long nearly six months since we closed due to COVID-19 in early March. During our closure, staff took courses on small library operations and programming, and maintained our online resources, such as our e-book and e-magazine subscriptions. We also fielded questions about the library service, renewed memberships...
National Poetry Month by Hannah Wight

Welcome back to our blog! Covid-19 has slowed us down a bit, but we are eager to get to posting regularly once again. I had this entry written and ready to post in April, but then we closed and it lay forgotten. Therefore, I thought I would post it now rather than waiting for next April to roll around again.
For those who are unaware, April is National Poetry Month. I’m thankful that there is an entire month dedicated to poetry, as the great poets (past & present) have utilized their words to...

Book Clubs - Yea or Nay? by Alison McCorkle
Posted on Wednesday, April 01, 2020 01:08 PM
I’ve always wanted to be in a book club but have never had the privilege. The closest I’ve come is working the evenings when one of the library’s book clubs would have their meetings.
I love reading and read for my own pleasure every day. I always squeeze in time for reading even if it’s just fifteen minutes or so.
I have friends and family who are in book clubs and I’m always curious about how they’re run and how the clubs go about choosing what books they will be reading. Every book club,...
