At the Library for February 28th, 2017

Updated 2017/02/27




Novelist Douglas Preston writes the true story of how a group of scientists recently discovered the untouched ruins of a vanished culture in ‘The Lost City of the Monkey God.’


Erin Hunter fans will be delighted with her latest novel ‘Hawkwing’s Journey’—released in a super edition which includes a host of extras including a manga adventure.


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 Butterflies!


New this year is Baby Laptime on Fridays at 1 pm. This program is for babies who are not yet walking so a specific age is not really set—best approximation is under 1 year of age.  Since we do not have daycare for older siblings we ask that parents who have babies and children who are walking come to the toddler storytime instead of the baby laptime.


FREE one-on-one tech training session for those of you who want to enhance your current computing skills. We cover many topics including Basic Tablet usage, Basic Computer usage, Windows 10 training, Window 8 + 8.1 training, Window 7 training, Microsoft Suit training, Library E book training, and much more. To register, please contact the Library at (250) 426-4063, or sign up at the front desk.
