At the Library for July 17th, 2018

Updated 2018/07/16

A woman’s life goes off track when she decides to care for her son’s ex-girlfriend and her young daughter in Anne Tyler’s ‘Clock Dance.’

Dawn Huebner’s ‘Outsmarting Worry’ helps pre-teens identify and cope with anxiety issues common to their age.

It’s here! It has arrived! Registration for the Summer Reading Club is currently in full swing. Registration is ongoing all summer, so come on down and sign up for your reading log and kit. There are tons of prizes and activities this year. Please check out website, Facebook page, or call 250-426-4063 for more information. There are also reading clubs for teens and adults.

Our Summer Reading Club prevents the dreaded “summer slide”—a state when kids who stop reading over the summer begin to lose some of what they have learned in school. With our reading logs, free events, and hands on learning, the Library aims to provide each young person a fun reason to keep reading, and to read what they like best. The program also helps reluctant readers, and is a perfect excuse for family time.

PRONUNCIATOR is the Library’s brand new language learning app. Learn one of 80 languages for free with your library card. Pronunicator can be used on your smartphone, tablet or computer.
