See the people and places of your community through new eyes in the upcoming exhibit “Picture Port Perry” by Jonathan van Bilsen. The opening Reception will begin Saturday, September 29th, 2018 at 2 pm. The show will run September 29th – October 25th, 2018 in the Kent Farndale Gallery in the Scugog Memorial Public Library at 231 Water Street in Port Perry.
Mr. van Bilsen is a talented local photographer and author who is celebrating the successful launch of his latest book, “Picture Port Perry”, which highlights the residents and landscapes of the Scugog area. This exhibit will display many of the photos and stories from his book and serve as proof that, despite visiting 99 countries across the globe, Jonathan continues to be passionate about his community here at home.
The Kent Farndale Gallery is open 7 days a week during library hours. Please call 905-985-7686 for more information.

We are thrilled to add to our wonderful cultural events with some special programs in honour of Culture Days in September and a new Art program in partnership with the Alzheimer Society of Durham Region. We have, as usual, some fantastic films lined up for our regular Movie Nights, and our much-loved book club programs. We also have lots going on for the little ones as usual with our storytimes! There’s something for everyone at the Library!
