Lifescapes

02:30 PM | Online

What are your stories?

Lifescapes is a memoir writing program for people with life experience, designed to help you think and write about the legacy you want to leave. We meet regularly throughout the fall, winter, and spring for writing guidance and support, then publish an annual anthology of short memoirs in the summer.

This fall we’ll meet virtually, using Zoom for presentations and group discussion, then transition back to meeting at the Main Library as it becomes safer (and in accordance with all relevant guidelines).

Contact Robin at rharding@brantfordlibrary.ca to register or for more information.

Check out the Lifescapes webpage for resources, past anthologies, and to stay current on program events.

You can watch our Lifescapes videos on our YouTube channel.

Youth Advisory Group Meet Ups

06:30 PM | Online

Join our Youth Advisory Group!

Teens ages 14+ can join monthly online meet-ups to talk about books and culture and provide ideas on how the Library can create services and programs for local teens. Then, based on the discussions, there could be opportunities to become further involved and help the Library best serve Brantford's teens. 

This is a great way for teens to meet new people, improve social and leadership skills and gain insight into their community. Volunteer hours will be granted to participants. 

These meetings will take place online. Zoom information will be sent before each meeting. Register for each session separately:
