New West library welcomes the return of two longtime programs

From the library

The New Westminster Public Library is excited to welcome two of our longest-running programs back to the main branch in May 2019, after meeting at other locations in the community for two years. 

At the ESL Conversation Circles, English learners meet with English-speaking volunteers to practise conversations in an informal setting.  The Friday group (women only) returns on 10:30 a.m. on May 3.  The Saturday group (all adults) returns on 10:30 a.m. on May 4.  This program is drop-in for English learners.

The New Westminster Historical Society returns to the NWPL Auditorium at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, May 15, and after that will continue meeting here on the third Wednesday of every month at 7 p.m.  The evening’s presentation will be a continuation of the previous month’s meeting, looking at the history of the New Westminster waterfront.  This is a drop-in program, so no registration required.

New West Reads returns for a second month and will meet at 7 p.m. on Thursday, May 16 and 2 p.m. on Wednesday, May 29. Registration is not required, so drop in and tell us about what you’re reading and learn about what other participants are reading. 

New West Cooks is a cookbook club to talk about your favourite cookbooks, recipes and more. For the May meeting the theme will be From the Garden.  The first meeting will be at 7 p.m. on Thursday, May 23. Registration required.

Interested in picking up a new hobby? Come learn about what it takes to manage a bee hive.  Join us at 7 p.m. on Thursday, May 30 for Bees and Beekeeping. The New Westminster Beekeepers Association (NWBA) will share facts about the fascinating world of bees, honey and beekeeping.  Registration required.
