Due to COVID restrictions programming is limited, postponed or modified for safety. We will be switching to an online format in some cases. We still offer our services but these are modified for safety. Contact us for more information.

History Circle

Our newest addition to the SNPL regular program schedule is the History Circle.  We meet at 2pm on the 3rd Tuesday of the month in our second floor Boardroom.  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.

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.

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. Youth can participate in the DIY program and compete for prizes.  More information about this new format to the club will be published in mid June 2021. The 2021 booklets are from last year’s cancelled program and so say, 2020. The theme this year is GAME ON @ 6NPL! Sign up by contacting the library and getting a kit OR sign up online at the TD Summer Reading Club. Children will choose books, track their reading, participate in fun activities and if COVID restrictions allow meet once to launch the program and again to close the program and announce the Grand Prize Winner.

Share Your Garden

Share Your Garden began was a weekly get together on Zoom every Friday at noon in partnership with Terrylynn Brant of Mohawk Seedkeepers; it is now monthly on the third Friday of the month.

Share Your Garden provides space for growers and gardeners in Six Nations to dialogue about local issues and to learn from one another. The goal is to share knowledge and local information among farmers, small gardeners, and anyone who wants to learn. A prime concern is to make space for relationships among local growers and Haudenosaunee growers; even during these COVID times. We feel it is important to know one another if we are to support one another in maintaining and building on our Haudnenosaunee growing traditions.

Terrylynn helps our growers with her experienced advice and extensive knowledge. Members help one another by sharing information about resources, their own knowledge and experiences; and especially by encouraging one another. Interests include indigenous plants, orchards, trees, Carolinian plants, organic growing methods, food and flowers.

Below you will find some of the edited Zoom recordings from our very informative guests!

Currently meeting every third Friday of the month at noon; online or in-person as safety allows. Join us by contacting the library!
