At the Library for July 11th, 2017

Updated 2017/07/10

After discovering their reservation was sitting on one of the largest oil deposits in the United States, the Osage Indian Nation became the richest people per capita on the planet in the early 1920. Then they started to disappear one by one. David Grann’s ‘Killers of the Flower Moon’ examines this incredible true story—one of mass murder and the FBI’s failure.

Virginia Loh-Hagan’s ‘Magic Show’ and ‘Haunted House’ are full of DIY fun for kids of all ages.

Registration for the Summer Reading Club is ongoing all summer–kids can register then and receive their kits for the club. 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.
