Hello dearest readers. Happy Friday!

I know we are all looking forward to a quiet and relaxing weekend, but I know some folks who are ready to have some fun! Our TD Shakespeare for Kids Library Club is back for another session starting on November 2, at Toronto Public Library locations across the city! The sessions run from 10am-12pm and 2pm-4pm.

We had a training session on Monday with our library instructors and some of our interns! Our Education Coordinator led the group through a series of workshops, so they will be able to lead their own groups through Shakespeare’s works!
