At the Library for July 18th, 2017

Updated 2017/07/17

Two new books this week help readers try and understand the past. In ‘Built on Bones’ archaeologist Brenna Hassett looks at our fifteen thousand-year development from simple dwellings to our current mega-cities. Similar in tone is Beebe Bahrami’s ‘Café Neandertal’—a look at the current archaeological puzzle of just who the Neanderthals were, and what their disappearance means to humanity.

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.
