My Life as A…
We have started a new project, “My Life as A…” We will be making short videos interviewing interesting people in our community, and sharing them on our social media pages. Want to know what life is like as an academic? A farmer? A Librarian? Watch our social media for new episodes of “My Life as A…” and find out! And if you know an interesting person who might like to share their experiences, please feel free to email us at email@example.com. We’d love to share their story!

Check Out A Skill
You've checked out plenty of books to learn on your own, why not 'check out a skill' and get one-on-one help to learn something new?!?!
Visit the second floor staff, call 613-968-6731 x 2037 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
to tell us what you'd like to learn: a staff member will set up an appointment for you to come in and spend an hour learning something new. Some of our most frequently requested skills include using Facebook or Skype; using a tablet or eReader; how to upload photos to a computer; and how to research family history. Note - we are not taking any bookings at this time.
Adult Computer Workshops
The Information Services Department is pleased to offer Adult Computer Workshops to BPL members at no cost. If you know someone who might benefit from learning the basics of using a computer, using the internet or email, please contact Information Services located on the 2nd floor or by telephone at 613-968-6731 x 2037. Pre-registration is required, space is limited; priority will be given to those who have not already taken the course and those who have a valid library card. Note - These workshops are currently unavailable.
Join us for a cozy chat about the books you love, either in the afternoon or the evening, whichever suits you best! Click here
