At the Library for January 9th, 2018

Updated 2018/01/08



In 1966, a twelve-year-old girl froze to death on the railway tracks after running away from residential school. The following inquest demanded an array of changes, none of which ever applied. In ‘Seven Fallen Feathers,’ Tanya Talaga investigates seven deaths which occurred after these recommendations were ignored.


Jeff Savage is back with last year’s record breaking scores in ‘Hockey Super Stats.’


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 “Mittens”.  Baby Laptime Thursday at 10 am.

Please note there is always a Wednesday evening Story Time at 6:30 pm for ages 3 to 9 and their caregivers. Perfect way to unwind.
