Where community connects

Won’t you be my neighbour

Leave a comment

On June 13th, every Kitchener Public Library location joined all City of Kitchener community centres to celebrate the first Neighbours Day! We offered plenty of activities for neighbours big and small – including a bike maintenance workshop, sidewalk chalk, face painting, giant chess, refreshments, storytime, games, and crafts.

At Central Library, we also offered tours and a chance to learn how to download music, books, magazines, and more to your tablet or smart phone. We hosted the City of Kitchener’s artist-in-residence, Janice Jo Lee, as she collected stories from you! Find out what she heard from you, and learn more about Janice’s project.

Our neighbours also painted Library Rocks, (because the library rocks, and so do you!) which you’ll now see peering cheerfully out of the gardens at Central. And they made bookmarks that were randomly placed into books – a nice surprise for the next neighbour who signs out that book.

Thanks to the City of Kitchener for this amazing community initiative, to library staff who planned great activities, to Recycle Cycles for their bike maintenance workshop, and to YOU – our neighbours. Would you be mine, could you be mine, won’t you check out my Neighbours Day photos below:
