Today

  1. Marilyn Taylor's Retirement Open House
    • Calendar: Scarborough Public Library Youth Services
    • Start time: 09:30am
    • Marilyn Taylor has been a much-loved member of our Youth Services team since 1994. No doubt there are many of you who attended her early literacy story times with your now older children. In fact, many of you may have attended as children yourselves and are now bringing your own wee ones to Baby Lapsit or Rhymin’ Time. Whatever your connection might be, we invite you to join us for a special Open House to celebrate Marilyn’s many years of service to our community and to wish her well as she retires. The morning will be informal. Drop in any time between 9:30 am and 11:00 am. Share your favorite “Marilyn moments.” And don’t be surprised if the guest of honor offers a spontaneous story or song for all to enjoy. Hope you can be there. All ages are welcome!
