Crafts at Beacock Reading Rocks event! Reading Rocks are family literacy events offered for school-aged children and their families at various Library locations throughout the year.


We work in partnership with a variety of community organizations including: OEYC (Ontario Early Years), Middlesex Health Unit, LIHC (London Intercommunity Health Centre), Hutton House, NELCE (Northeast London Community Engagement) and LUSO Community Services. We create services and programs that help to make us the “hub” of the community.
