Youth can participate in the program on their own or in person. At the end of the summer SNPL will hold a celebration event.  Sign up by attending our registration event, contacting the library and getting a kit OR sign up online at the TD Summer Reading Club.

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!

Book Clubs

Magic Machine Book Club

The last Monday of the month at 5PM.

We choose one title a month that is available to us on Kobo eReaders via KoboPlus.

If books are heavy for you, you like to read more than one book at a time, trying out and sampling different titles, or if you like to read in all types of locations and lighting situations the Kobo eReader could be for you. It is waterproof, very light, has a long battery life and borrowing it from the library means it comes with KoboPlus. It also works with the library’s ebooks through Overdrive.

Staff can show you how it works and get it set up for you.

Haudenosaunee Virtual Book Club

Takes place Tuesdays at 10AM on Zoom. Ongoing.

We read one book over a season, taking our time with in-depth discussion.
