Guelph Public Library staff are working to update and improve our Blogs. In order to do this we are ceasing our posts for a few months. In the late summer, early fall, we will be creating one GPL blog that reflects our new branding.
So stay tuned… we’ll be back soon.
Have a great Summer!

Dogs in the Park: How to Choose the Right Dog for your Family
Saturday, May 7, 2016 (2:30 pm – 3:30 pm) Main Library
Meeting new people can be a daunting experience- in fact, for me, the first word that came to mind was “task” and not “experience”. Meeting new people can be intimidating and sometimes dreadful; of course, it depends on the situation. I meet new people every day in my role as a librarian but these interactions rarely leave me feeling uncomfortable because usually there is a purpose to the interaction. No- what I dread the most is the small talk and the awkward silences that come with trying to find something to say in a new or social environment. Whether you’re the plus one at a wedding, talking to an old acquaintance, or meeting a room full of new people it is often hard to start a conversation and keep it going.
Check out one of these items and get some pointers on how to make your next conversation more comfortable.
