The library will come to you

One by one, the bright blue Library bags line up inside the work areas at each one of the four Library locations. They are organized and filled with favourite authors, great movies that someone may have missed, biographies and many other interesting items that have been requested. All these bags are for the Visiting Library Service. By the 15th of each month a delivery is selected, prepared and ready to be picked up by a faithful volunteer for those who cannot get to the Library due to age, illness or disability. If you or someone you know might be interested in more information about the Visiting Library Service please call us at 905-356-8080. We are also taking applications for those wishing to volunteer for this important service and are grateful to all of our volunteers who help bring a smile to those who are unable to visit us.

Fans of Melissa McCarthy won’t want to miss her most recent true-story depiction of Lee Israel in Can You Ever Forgive Me? Celebrity biographer Lee Israel made her living in the 1970s and '80s profiling the likes of Katherine Hepburn, Tallulah Bankhead, Estee Lauder and journalist Dorothy Kilgallen. When Lee is no longer able to get published because she has fallen out of step with current tastes, she turns her art form to deception. The movie shows at the Victoria Avenue Library on Tuesday, February 12 at 6 p.m. It runs for 107 minutes and is rated 14A.

Library Notes


Niagara Falls Public Library launched its Seed to Seed collection May 17.

If you come to any of the library's four locations across Niagara Falls you can "borrow" up to three packages of seeds.

After you've planted the seeds and harvested your vegetables, you can set aside some seeds to give back to the library so another person can enjoy the collection.


Mental Health Week invites us to be mindful with meditation at Niagara Falls library.

In our ongoing effort to meet community needs wherever we can, Niagara Falls Public Library has been running a series of mental health and wellness programs at our four branches throughout 2019.


Have you ever been curious about what it would be like to grow your own vegetables? Have you ever thought about teaching your children or grandchildren where their food comes from?

Or, like me, have you ever been known for having a black or a brown thumb?


On Thursday, April 25th the Niagara Falls Public Library will be unveiling its new board game collection. Board Games are a great way to reduce screen time, to interact face-to-face with family and friends, and to challenge yourself in new and interesting ways.


Calling all Book Lovers! Please join us for our annual Book Lover’s Luncheon. Enjoy a delicious lunch catered by Tastebuds Cafe and Eatery and meet special guest, Cea Sunrise Person author of North of Normal and its sequel Nearly Normal.


Since the mid-20th century, human beings have wrought unprecedented changes to the Earth, bringing us into a new epoch of geologic time: the Anthropocene.


You’re invited to help us at the Library. On April 1, 2019 we are embarking on a year-long project called Bridge to understand how libraries use technology.


When we think about sports excellence in the City of Niagara Falls, we can include both team sports and individual activities. Although it may not be the first sport that pops into to your mind, one such sport has a long history in the City of Niagara Falls!
