With the winter holidays right around the corner it is nearing that time of year when new electronics make their way into our home. Normally new electronics can be a joy to play with and learn all the modern tricks ourselves but sometimes it is easier to have someone else there to aid in any situations when things get overwhelming.

With that being said, the Temiskaming Shores Public Library will be closed on Remembrance Day so that we can show our respect to the great veterans who fought for our freedom.  We do wish to remind our patrons that we have a great selection of books pertaining to the Canadian Armed Forces,...

Why I Love to Read Fantasy by Elesha Teskey

Posted on Wednesday, November 03, 2021 05:34 AM
