At City Centre branch: Through a close examination of toys we can begin to understand the morals, values and roles being passed onto children at any point in history. In the early days of Coquitlam children were taught about hard work and they had to create their own fun. Join us as we explore the toy collection of Coquitlam Heritage. From the handmade to plastic, these toys stimulate our imaginations, employ our skills and engage our creativity. www.coquitlamheritage.ca

At Poirier branch: A selection of beautiful and intricately worked pieces by member of the Coquitlam Needlearts Guild.
