We still have spots available in our summer reading club – a free children’s program for ages six to 12, running from July 9 to Aug. 23 – come in and sign up.
And our adult reading club (the summer edition) is up and running.
This year we have a wonderful selection of mysteries with female protagonists. Fill out a review form and enter to win one of many great prizes.
Due to popular demand, we’ll be continuing our preschool storytime throughout the summer.
Come on down every Friday from 10:30 to 11 a.m. for songs, rhymes and stories.
And starting on July 3, we’ll be having weekly storytimes at the Christina Lake Welcome Centre, every Wednesday from 2 to 2:30 p.m., until Aug. 21. All ages are welcome.
Les Johnson will be at the library on Thursdays starting July 4 from 6 to 7:45 p.m. to teach people how to create, produce and edit their own videos for YouTube.
Whether you want to put together some videos of family or friends, or you want to enter the exciting “What Do You Love About Grand Forks?” contest, this is the place to be!
There are a whole lot of things that keep us busy in the summer – only some of which are library-related. If you plan to explore our beautiful province, we have travel books, backroad mapbooks and guides for hiking, canoeing, cycling, and more. For all you gardeners out there, we have a comprehensive collection of books on everything from fruit tree pruning to xeriscaping to backyard beekeeping.
And those of us who are all about eating and cooking, our stacks are bursting at the seams with cookbooks on everything from barbecue to tacos to smoothies!
Cool off at the library
Another thing about summer – it gets hot! The library is air-conditioned and is a good place to escape from the heat when it’s getting to you.
