“We know there are parents who work during the day and can’t attend weekday morning programs,” TNRD children and youth services co-ordinator Meg Ross said in a press release.

“We want them to still be able to come to the library and enjoy great programs with their children.”

Meanwhile, Man in the Moon — geared at male caregivers with kids ages five and younger — will return on Wednesday nights for eight weeks beginning Oct. 9.

It will run from 6:30 p.m. to 7 p.m.

For more information about children’s and youth services at the libraries, contact 250-554-1124, email mross@tnrd.ca.
