Food For Fines

Have library fines? Want to do some good while you clear them up? Stratford Public Library is holding its annual Food for Fines drive in celebration of Ontario Public Library Week from October 14-20. Bring in non-perishable food donations to the library to have your fines waived.

All donations will be made to Stratford's Salvation Army Food Bank. Please give generously.

Science Literacy Week

We're turning the library into a science lab! Join us during Science Literacy Week from September 17-23.

Visit the main floor for science-related book displays, science-infused reading and viewing suggestions, and activites for all ages! 

Peak your curiosity in the children's department with fun activities. Explore our mysterious nature display, create magnetic wonders, and see the world in a whole new way at the magnifying station.

These science-fueled activities are available all week long during regular library hours.

The fun doesn't stop - each participant will get a box of crayons to take home too!
