At the Library for June 13th, 2017

Updated 2017/06/12

 

 

 

In ‘White Setter Reserve’ historian Ryan Eyeford looks at a reserve on the shores of Lake Winnipeg, created by the government in 1875. Instead of First Nations, this reserve was created for Icelandic immigrants, who would only experience hardship and death.

 

While serving in the First World War, Canadian R.H. Rabjohn kept a diary using illustrations instead of words. His drawings have been reproduced in whole  for younger readers in ‘A Soldier’s Sketchbook.’

 

StoryTime and Baby LapTime are both on hiatus until September. Our Summer Reading Club is right around the corner.
