Enjoy wordy pursuits & conversation at your local Delta Library

Online and in person programs for all ages starting on Monday

Are you looking for competitive fun indoors on a likely rainy November afternoon?

Invite friends and family to register for Word Nerds, an online game of word scrambles, on Monday, Nov. 7, from 3:15 pm-to- 4 pm.

Compete as a team or an individual. Make as many words as possible from a series of scrambled letters in a set amount of time! Challenge your mind, memory and vocabulary! All ages are welcome.

If you love word games, sign up and join library staff online for Put Your Game Face On! It takes on Monday, Dec. 5, from 3:15 pm-to- 4 pm.

Relish the challenge to explain the meaning of some idioms - you will either be hitting the nail on the head or barking up the wrong tree, but you'll definitely be laughing your head off! Learn the origins of these quirky phrases that are now just part of everyday life. As a group, we will discuss our own idiom experiences. All ages are welcome!

Improve your English by listening and speaking about different topics each week from the comfort of your own home with online Conversation Circle. 

Every Wednesday from Nov. 2 – Dec. 14, from 1:30 pm – 2:30 pm, meet new friends while practicing the English language. Suitable for all levels. Weekly registration is required. 

Do you prefer drop-in and in-person practice? Ladner Pioneer Library offers newcomers this opportunity on Thursdays from 6 p.m. – 7:15 p.m. until Dec. 22.

The George Mackie Library invites adults with developmental disabilities to Next Chapter Book Club, a weekly Wednesday opportunity from 10:30 am – 11:30 am, to read and learn together, talk about books, make friends, and have fun in a relaxed community setting. 

Calling all young writers between the ages of nine–to-12 can explore their imagination and develop their creative writing skills in the online program Young Writers on Monday, Nov. 21, from 3:30 pm – 4:15 pm.
