At the Library for November 3rd, 2015
The good news is George R. R. Martin has finally published a new novel. The bad news is it is NOT the long awaiting conclusion to his Fire & Ice Series (aka Game of Thrones). ‘A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms’ takes place in the same setting, but a full century earlier.
Simon Winchester explains to young readers not only the scientific causes of natural disasters, but also what their impact has on populations that experience them in ‘When the Earth Shakes.’
Storytime is back! Preschool Story Time is this Wednesday at 11:00 am, 1:15 pm, & 6:30 pm, and Toddler Story Time is 10:00 and 11:00 am. Both will be all about Ladybugs!
Tablet training has returned. Anyone interested in learning about basic tablet usage, including internet, email, e-books, and accessing resources and invited to attend any of the upcoming free classes. Sessions begin this Sunday, October 11th from 3 to 4 pm at the Library. To register, please contact Jason at 250-317-4927.
The planned author reading on October 29th featuring Jim Cameron and Keith Powell has been postponed until January.
On display this month is Frank Eimer’s absolutely amazing Remembrance Day display.
