With the winter weather upon us, it’s a great time to snuggle up with a good book, magazine or movie, or head outside for some winter fun – and try snowshoeing.

Thanks to a partnership with Active Pictou County, we have numerous sets of snowshoes for all ages and sizes available for borrowing. Another great outdoor opportunity to enjoy this time of year is stargazing due to the extra hours of dark nights (all the better to see the starry skies). Wish you had a telescope to try? Thanks to a partnership with St. FX University’s physics department, we have several small portable Celestron telescopes you can borrow. All you need is your library card, and that’s free too. The library has a number of informative books and magazines about astronomy and exploring the great outdoors.
