Much happening at Maple Ridge library in June

Safely shred your confidential information while directly supporting your local library.

June is Senior’s Month, so join the celebration at the Maple Ridge Public Library.

Are you interested in a behind-the-scenes tour of the inner workings of the library? On Wednesday, June 7 and Wednesday, June 14, from 2–3:30 p.m., the library is hosting a Seniors Walking Tour of the library, followed by tea and cookies.

The Silvertones are back by popular demand. On June 8, 2-3:30 p.m., join us for a relaxed afternoon of songs, stories, and laughter at our annual seniors social. Refreshments will be served.

Safely shred your confidential information while directly supporting your local library. On June 10, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., for a small cash donation to the Friends of the Library, 1-800-Shredding will safely destroy your confidential documents – anything from a few sheets to boxes of paper. This event takes place behind the library.

On Monday, June 19, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Connect Hearing will be at the library to check your hearing health. Drop in and get tested by a registered hearing instrument practitioner for free.

Teens, June is a stressful month filled with finals. Did you know that the library is a great place to study? Each evening from 7–8 p.m., Tuesday, June 13 through Thursday, June 15 come to the library to study and relax. We have space to study – a teens only café with refreshments, and some surprises to help you de-stress.

And don’t forget, Summer Reading Club for all ages starts this month. Drop in to the library to sign up and start reading to win fun prizes all summer long.

• For more information on these and other programs, check out the events section on our website @ or contact the library at 604-467-7417.
