Calendar November 2018


Champlain Library is asking for donations of new books so that every child will wake up Christmas morning with a book on his or her bed. We have a list of children so please contact the library to be matched with a child.

We will specify the age, gender and language of each child.

Call or stop by the Champlain Library to help out! 

All books must be returned unwrapped with a gift bag and tissue paper by Friday November 30th



Local artist Nathalie Frenière’s work is on display at the Champlain Library.

Nathalie Frenière was born in Montreal, Canada.
From an early age, Frenière expanded the range of her creativity through drawing and music.
She experimented with different forms of expression and found her true voice in visual arts.
Afterward, she followed master class painting in Montreal and Paris.
She studied graphic design and practiced this profession for fifteen years.
Now, she dedicates herself full-time to her painter’s career.
She also teaches painting classes in her studio in Vankleek Hill.
Her work has been shown in galleries and museums, and has traveled to exhibitions and symposia in Canada, the USA and Brazil.
Her oil paintings exude a quiet, calming atmosphere.She uses a palette knife and thinned oil to create vaporous, enigmatic, abstract vistas. At once representational and abstract, she paints with a serene madness that embraces both worlds.
