At the Library for July 4th, 2017

Updated 2017/07/03

 

 

 

While one won’t find Narnia, Oz, or Hogwarts, you will find real places that are not recognized by the UN in Nick Middleton’s ‘An Atlas of Countries That Don’t Exist.’

 

A purple octopus and an abominable snowman help their penguin leader try to take over the entire planet in Laura Ellen Anderson’s ‘Evil Emperor Penguin.’

 

Registration for the Summer Reading Club is ongoing all summer.  Kids can register then and receive their kits for the club. July 4th starts off with a WildsafeBC Presentation at 10 am, and Teens have a Personalize Your Reading Journal event at 2 pm.  Please check out our website, Facebook page, or call 250-426-4063 Ext: 106 for more information. This is going to be the best Summer Club yet.

 

The Library also has an adult reading club in full swing as well. Come on down and register anytime—there are lots of prizes to be won this year.
