On Saturday, April 12, our Children/Youth Librarian, Heather, is hosting a special Spring Fun event at the library from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. Bring the family and try your hand at some Easter crafts, cookie decorating and enjoy our Spring Storytime.
Also on April 12, Canada’s colourful past comeswithin reach when Nelson author Anne DeGrace reads from her fourth novel, Flying with Amelia at 1 p.m. The book takes the reader across a country and across a century, with some poignant stops along the way. The story, set in 1936, chronicles correspondence between a Nova Scotia secretary and a Saskatchewan schoolteacher during the Great Depression, with the adventurous courage of the doomed Amelia Earhart a metaphor for hope. Anne will be available to answer questions and sign copies of her books.
Ongoing events include our French and Spanish conversation groups (beginner to intermediate levels) who meet on alternating Thursdays from 4:00 to 5:30 p.m. The library book club meets the second Wednesday of each month at 6:00 p.m in the library. Join us for a lively and friendly conversation, everyone welcome. Free income tax help continues on April 11 and 25. Children’s programming takes place on Wednesdays with Bouncing Babies and Books from 11:00 to 11:30 a.m. and on Thursday, Preschool Storytime from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. Please call the library at 604-886-2130 or visit our website: gibsons.bclibraries.coop for more information on any of these programs.
