Holiday season activities


Activites for everyone!


Christmas is coming soon! Here are some suggestions to continue to make this season magical for everyone! 


Santa's mail box


Santa's elves crossed their space-time continuum to deliver a magical mailbox to Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue!

If you drop your letter to Santa Claus in this mailbox by December 10, it will automatically be sent to the North Pole and Santa will have enough time to respond to you before Christmas.
You will find the magical mailbox at the end of the enchanted animal trail that the elves also created just for you in the corridor between the library and the Centre Harpell.

Don't forget to put your name and return address on your letter so the elves can find you easily! (They have so much work to do right now (and besides, it's well known, these naughty elves are pretty distracted)!)

You can even print out a sample letter here or grab a printed copy from the back of the mailbox to write your message. Just bring a pencil and an envelope.

Psst! No need for a stamp, it's a magical mailbox!


The address to write on your letter:

H0H 0H0

PLEASE NOTE: The enchanted animal trail and the mailbox are accessible during library opening hours.
