Sewing Club

For anyone, of any age, who would like to practice or relearn their hand-sewing skills. Join us to get help and to socialize.

If you have a current hand-sewing (or embroidery) project, bring it along!



Team Challenge

The Team Challenge is back by popular demand. Put together your own team in advance, or join a team at the library for this fun-filled afternoon. Collaborate ideas, create amazing projects and learn new things with your team.  Each team will be given a list of 10 STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Math) challenges to complete. Team Challenge medallions will be awarded to successful teams!  

Movin' and Groovin

The name says it all, this program is ideal for families who like to move and groove!  Join us for singing, dancing & interactive storytelling.

The Festival Marketplace Shopping Centre provides the space (and parking!), Public Library On Wheels provides the fun!


Beach Party!

Forget the snowflakes, snow pants, shoveling, and sniffing and slide on into the warmth and fun of the SPL's Beach Party!

Wear summer attire and bring a beach towel to sit on.  

This free drop-in program will be sunshiny fun for all ages.

Sensory Storytime

Sensory Storytime is ideal for children with sensory integration challenges, difficulty sitting still, difficulty in large groups, or children who have autism spectrum disorders. Funded by a grant from the Stratford & District Leisure Activity Council, this program is designed to engage children through movement, music, stories and sensory activity play.  Our goal is to create an inclusive, welcoming and judgment-free environment for learning and play.

Registration is required.

Paws 4 Reading

Sometimes reading out loud can be scary. The good news is that these dogs don't judge! They just want to listen to a story and see a friendly face. Spend time each week reading to one of the St. John Ambulance therapy dogs to practice your literacy skills and make a new, furry friend.
