SNPL has an astounding history which begins even before we opened our doors in the Spring of 1968. We are happy to be providing better collections and service every year.
Friends of SNPL
As a Registered Charity, the Foundation exists to support the efforts of the Six Nations Public Library, the SNPL Board, and the initiatives, programs and services of the staff of SNPL.
PL subscribes to several E-Resources thanks to both the Six Nations Community Development Trust and an Ontario Ministry of Tourism and Culture’s provincial investment in public libraries of $15 Million.

This Circle is open to anyone who has an interest in talking about or learning about our local history. Participants are encouraged to bring pictures or documents to share with the group or with the Library for digitization.
TD Summer Reading Club
SNPL is a TD SRC participating library. These groups meet at scheduled time throughout the summer and receive incentives for participating and for reading and presenting books at their own reading level. In 2014 we are changing our program based on requests of the participants. SNPL will offer three clubs:
Pre-school (Age 3-5); Girls (Age 6-13); Boys (Age 6-13)
Each year a different theme is provincially selected.

Adult Reading Circle
Our adult circle runs two times per year and is based on specific books. On occasion this club has followed other programs such as the Oprah Circle on-line or has been run in house. Suggestions for titles and times are always welcome.
Youth Reading Club
The Youth Reading Club functions like the TD SRC but is run during the school year. May 2013 includes a Saturday Super Hero Club from 10-12. Wednesday’s after school club will be meeting in Veteran’s park for a story hour. Check with the Library staff for other planned story programs.
