This includes panels, Q&As, games, etc.

Online work meeting

Although we would love to bring everybody together in the flesh, the current public health situation makes that impossible.

The Jewish Public Library (JPL) is a community library in one of the most ethnically diverse neighbourhoods in Canada, operating for over 100 years in five official languages.

The Norman Berman Children’s Library (NBCL) division of the JPL has been a leader in library programming in Montreal for the past 35 years, having pioneered story-times and music programs for infants and preschoolers that have impacted a generation of kids and their families, and has more recently developed innovative, creative and educational programs for school-aged children. The “Girls’ Night Out” program for tween and teen girls and their mothers has been running successfully since 2004, with popular female authors like Sarah Mlynowski, Sarah Dessen, Gayle Forman and many more brought in each year to inspire and enlighten young girls.
