At the Library for July 31st, 2018

Updated 2018/07/30

Cynthia Kane offers suggestions rooted in Buddhist thought and mindfulness for help in eliminating negative self-talk in her latest book ‘Talk to Yourself Like a Buddhist.’

Abby and her friends get stuck in the book ‘Alice in Wonderland’ and must avoid the Red Queen at all cost in Sarah Mlynowski’s ‘Abby in Wonderland.’

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.
