After the hot summer of bustling activity, fall is a great time to be more reflective, and to take time to read or learn something new. There are always great new books at the library, as well as many new online resources that are fun to try such as Zinio. Zinio can easily be accessed with your GDPL library card, and offers a diverse range of magazines to read and browse. Zinio is just one of many databases accessible to GDPL members – ask a library staff member for more information about what they have to offer.
A great way to spend an October evening is coming up on Wed, October 4, when award-winning Indigenous filmmaker, writer, poet and local girl Annie Frazier Henry presents the untold story of Pauline Johnson, aka Tekahionwake from the Mohawk Nation. Ms. Johnson is considered by many as Canada’s “first lady of verse”: this event will highlight the rich legacy and life of this tremendous poet and performer.
This is also a great time to visit the library with the littler people in your life. GDPL has just completed an extensive renovation to our children’s area making it easier for children to find their own books, and expanding the space. Preschool Storytime on Wednesdays at 11am, and Bouncing Babies on Thursdays at 10am will be starting up in October – check our library website for more details.
Our skilled and knowledgeable library staff are always here to help you find the resources and programs you need and want. For further information on any of our services or programs, call (604) 886-2130 or check out our website www.gibsons.bclibrary.ca
