Children a Priority of the County of Prince Edward Public Library

Again this academic year classes from schools across Prince Edward County will be heading to their nearest library branch for a tour, an introduction to some of the many services available and, for the youngest students a story or two read aloud. In 2011 already, over two thousand students have paid a visit to one of the library branches.

The Prince Edward County Archives is a resource for high school students researching the history of Prince Edward County, veterans of the area who served in the first and second World Wars, and even their family tree. Visits can be arranged by contacting Krista Richardson the Archives manager at 613-399-2023 or emailing

Last year, the library’s Children and Youth Co-coordinator Liz Zylstra, planned a three week program wherein the participating class visited the library every Thursday to make puppets, create a story adaptation and to present a puppet show during week three’s visit.

The library has recently added new French language storybooks to the collection and developed a French story time. Last year during March break and over the summer a week long French Art Camp was offered. Eighteen attendees between the ages of ten and fourteen enjoyed creating art pieces and received French instruction from staff member Christine Renaud. Call the library to arrange a special French story time.

Again this year the library will be running its Tutoring Program. Parents can call the library to be connected with a qualified teacher volunteer. Space will be reserved in the library for the tutor and student to meet weekly. This is the fifth year of this successful program.

If you have an idea for quality children’s programming, or if you wish to volunteer your time to offer tutoring help or deliver a novel new program, call Youth and Children’s Services Coordinator Liz Zylstra at 613-476-5962 or email

Parents can ask to be included in the email list for notification of any upcoming programs at the library. The website at can also be consulted to check out upcoming events, new books, and library hours.
