July Events at New Westminster Public Library
by Renuka

Do you regularly visit your local public library? If not, summer is a great time to start! The New Westminster Public Library is holding a variety of events for adults and children throughout July. 

Every Saturday, ESL conversation circles for adults only will be held from 10:30 to 11:30 am. They also have an ESL conversation circle just for women each Friday from 10:00 – 11:00 am. Children are welcome to come along to the women’s sessions.

There are classes to help you prepare for the Canadian citizenship test available on the first Wednesday and Thursday of each month. This month, you can attend from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm on Wednesday, July 6th or on Thursday, July 7th. 

Have a baby? You can attend “Summer Babytime”, held each Friday at 10:30 am. This is a drop-in event for caregivers and babies 22 months and younger to enjoy songs and rhymes together.

Do you have pre-teen or teenage children? On Tuesday, July 5th, there will be stories and craft activities for pre-teens and youth, starting at 10:30 am. Each Wednesday in July, teenagers can meet up at the library at 1:30 pm to meet new friends, dance, chat, and take part in other activities.

These are just some of the many activities you can enjoy at the New Westminster Public Library this month. The best part about these activities is that they are all free! Some activities require advance registration, while others are drop-in activities. For full details, please visit the Events and Programmes page on the New Westminster Library website at
