The Gruffalo’s Child StoryWalk®

Thursday, December 16 – Sunday, December 19

Join us for an outdoor StoryWalk® around the library garden. Enjoy the fresh air and physical activity while reading “The Gruffalo’s Child” by Julia Donaldson.  Then pick up a Gruffalo activity sheet to keep the fun going at home!


Holiday Open House – “Give Library”

Friday, December 17 & Saturday, December 18

Stop by the library for some holiday treats and good cheer. It’s been quite a year and we want to take a moment to appreciate YOU, our amazing community! You can also pick up a “Give Library” card. If you know someone living in Sidney or North Saanich, who doesn’t yet have a library card or hasn’t visited the library in a long time, give them the gift of the library this holiday season. It’s the perfect present for anyone who loves books, movies, music, languages, video games, and so much more. They make great stocking stuffers!


 We’re also really excited to be an “Elf on the Shelf” location (
