The Power of PJs
Nov 1 – Nov 30 all-day

For November we are partnering with Agape House for an collection event called “The Power of PJ’s”.

November is Domestic Violence Awareness Month and to support this awareness, we will be collecting pajamas to be given to those who stay at Agape House.

Items that we are looking to have donated for both women and children are as follows: PJs, Slippers, Underwear, Socks, Bathrobes, Towels and Facecloths. We are looking for NEW items. Items can be dropped off into the collection bin in Jake Epp Library’s lobby.

“The Power of PJs” will run until November 30th.

“I loved this production and urge all to see it.” Ottawa Sun

“remarkable… Huston easily becomes the range of Dickens’ incredible characters.” The Hamilton Spectator

“Vivid and lively…a consummate storyteller…mesmerising.” Winnipeg Free Press

“powerful one-man theatre…in the hands of a master storyteller.” The National Post

Christmas Carol Poster 2018






















“Literature is the art of discovering something extraordinary about ordinary people, and saying with ordinary words something extraordinary” (Boris Pasternak). Extraordinary is what we strive for. Jake Epp Library’s aim is to encourage literacy by bringing books to life for all ages. Now we have taken that quite literally by hosting a theatrical production based upon a classic piece of literature such as this and through this we hope to enrich many people’s literary as well as theatrical experiences.

NaNoWriMo “Come Write In!”
Nov 24 @ 12:00 – 15:00

Have you ever wanted to write a novel? Join us at Jake Epp Library for National Novel Writing Month, otherwise known as NaNoWriMo.

The goal for the month of November is to write 50 000 words in a month whether it be a continuous story (traditional wrimo) or many short pieces (rebel wrimo).

Be part of a supportive writing group who will take this writing roller coaster together!

Join us for a writing session, held throughout November. Change of scenery (so you don’t become a hermit), writing with fellow authors, word wars, snacks, outlets, extension cords, and free WiFi.
