About the Show

Elgin County Library sponsors a radio show for children that is broadcast on 105.9 DeBrigj FM. DeBrigj is an Aylmer-based radio station that serves the Mennonite communities of the eastern County. The programming on 105.9 FM is mostly delivered in low German, but Check it In, Check it Out will feature stories and interviews with children in English. One of the show’s regular guests will be a familiar face to Aylmer Library users, but can you recognize her voice?

Join host Julie Berry on Mondays at 7:15 pm for stories, community conversation and to learn more about the library. Each episode is replayed the following Wednesday at 6:15 pm.

This project is funded as part of the Ministry of Tourism & Culture’s $15 million investment in libraries in Ontario. Elgin County Library would like to express its sincere thanks to the Ministry of Tourism & Culture for their generous support.
