Library Programs

Story Hours

Join us for weekly story-time and crafts! The hour begins with story time followed by an arts and crafts activity period. Enjoyable for all kids!

Class Visits

Are you looking for a free, curriculum-related field trip?  Why not consider visiting the John Dixon Public Library?  From picture books to the Internet, from encyclopedias to on-line databases, a visit to the library provides students with an excellent introduction to the tremendous range of resources and services that we have to offer. Also a Dewey Decimal scavenger hunt! Please call to arrange your visit.

Cyber Camp

For kids of all ages. Kids learn how to use computers and have fun going to age appropriate sites and learning about the internet.

Or perhaps you want to draw attention to a new community program or service. Here's one way you can do it.

PEP Talk

PEP - Public Education Program

The Friends of the Library host a monthly PEP Talk at the library, every third Wednesday of the month. Admission is free; refreshments will be served; door prize.

Pedometer Lending Program

Are you getting in 10,000 steps a day? Borrow a pedometer from the library and count how many steps you are taking towards improving your heath and fitness level. Call  or visit the library to get your own  pedometer.

Raising Readers

Raising Readers is a program designed to help parents read to their children. Learn how to make it fun and encourage your kids to read.

Voyageur Days

During Mattawa's summer festival, the library hosts activities for kids throughout the week. Contact the library for more information.
