Edible Book Festival

Have your book and eat it, too! Create an "edible book," a dessert inspired by a favourite tale, involve a pun on a famous title, or simply be in the shape of a book! All entries will be exhibited, judged, then EATEN! We have three categories: Open, Family, and Under 15. Entry fee is $3 per book. Here is the schedule: 2-2:30 participants arrive, 2:30-3:30 public viewing and judging, 3:30 awarding of prizes, and 4:00 consumption of books! Call or come in to sign up! Email us for more information or to register.
Early Learning Fair & Preschool Open House
Saturday, May 14th
Our annual Early Learning Fair, geared towards families with young children, is a great opportunity to check out what services our local organizations have to offer your family! Find out what your Orillia Public Library, Ontario Early Years Centre, Simcoe Muskoka Health Unit, and more, have to offer. Register for a free workshop to try something new (Psst! One of our workshops is with a dietician who is happy to give you tips on feeding your picky youngsters!). If you are shopping around for the right child care arrangement for your family, you can also talk to staff from many local centres to find the right fit at our Preschool Open House. Contact Children's Services for details and to register for a free workshop.
