The Mitchell Optimist Club is generously subsidizing the cost of the course by contributing $20/child as part of their Youth Appreciation Week/Month acitivities. Therefore the course costs $30/child instead of the usual $50.

This award-winning course presented by St. John Ambulance teaches the skills necessary to care for infants, toddlers and pre-schoolers.  It emphasizes safety, dealing with emergencies and first aid basics.

Course materials include a student activity book, a certificate suitable for framing and a wallet-size certificate.  This course is recommended for young people turning 11 in 2014.

Culture Days

HELD OVER - Culture Days @ West Perth Public Library

Culture Days was a free, interactive celebration of arts and culture from coast to coast to coast in September.  Here at the West Perth Public Library, there is an exhibit of art and photography based on the theme of "Lives of Girls and Women" honouring our Nobel Prize winner, Alice Munro.

Tweenie Tots

This program is for young children four years old and under.  We have fun reading stories, singing songs, doing crafts and add a touch of silliness to make it a great time.  Infants are welcomed as well.  Children must be accompanied by an adult.  The program is on Thursday mornings 10:30 -11:15 a.m. and the donation is $1/child/session.  The new session started on Thursday September 11, 2014 and will run until the middle of December.
