Puppetmongers visit to Walpole Island!

April 20, 2011

Bkejwanong Library and  Walpole Island Elementary School were very fortunate to have the internationally-acclaimed “Puppetmongers” visit our community on March 31st and April 1st 2011.

They performed their puppet play “Foolish Tales for Foolish Times” and did several puppet demonstrations at the Walpole Island Elementary School over the course of two days. One student was heard to exclaim “That was such fun!”.

In partnership with Bkejwanong First Nation Public Library, the Puppetmongers came to the Walpole Island community courtesy of “The Next Wave,” an ongoing collaboration between Southern Ontario Library Service (SOLS) and Mariposa In The Schools (MITS).  The Ontario Arts Council Touring and Collaborations generously supports “The Next Wave” programming.

First Nation Public Library Week 2011, a huge success

February 21, 2011

Bkejwanong Library’s First Nation Public Library Week was a huge success!

We started off with a bang on Monday, Feb. 14th with a rocking coffee house. Tuesday we showed a great First Nations movie. Wednesday and Thursday offered enlightening talks on culture and history, respectively. We learned about clans and some of the early history of Wallaceburg. Thanks to David White and Rick Fehr for sharing their knowledge. Friday we learned about genealogy and got people started on their family trees. On Saturday, we showed old photos of Walpole Island. It was nice to see so many new people coming to the library.
On that note, if there is anything you would like us to offer, or if there’s anything that we should offer again, please tell us!
Thanks to the community for coming out and supporting our First Nation Public Library!

Keep posted for our future events!

Yellowbird Talk

February 17, 2011

Our First Nation Public Library Week is going great! It’s been really nice to see the community coming out to our events.
Last night we had a great talk by David White. It’s really neat to be learning more about our history and culture.

Tonight Rick Fehr will be providing more of our local history by telling us about Yellowbird, an Ojibway leader who lived in what’s now Wallaceburg 200 years ago.
The talk starts at 7pm, and we’ll have light refreshments.

PS. As a door prize, we’ll be raffling off a snazzy, stylish black shkimat (bag) with red writing that says “First Nation Public Libraries”. Come out, hear a great talk, and you might score one of these exclusive bags!

Hope to see you here!
