TGIF: Dec. 12 & 13


Welcome to your weekend! We’ve got so much going on that we had to put it all here in one place for you.

A live music performance, artist-at-work demonstration, two great Free Flicks, an info session on refugee sponsorship,  and not one, but TWO Star Wars events.




Heading to Kitchener Market? Take the kids and take a break in the Kitchener Public Library Kids’ Club on the upper level with crafts, songs, and stories.

Looking for an e-reader or tablet as a holiday gift or for yourself? We can help. Come see us at the Tech Cafe.

It’s an Etsy world, we’re just living in it. See members of the KW Rug Hooking Guild at work. Feel free to chat and ask questions of these artisans.
