Journée internationale de la Francophonie

Paige McGeorge, Teenbrarian, Lethbridge Public Library

Le 20 mars, nous célébrons la Journée internationale de la Francophonie. Selon l’UNESCO, «[célébrer] la Francophonie, c’est reconnaître le potentiel de la langue et de la culture à unir les peuples, à créer des espaces de solidarité et de compréhension mutuelle, pour réfléchir ensemble à notre avenir commun.»

What’s New in Fiction at Lethbridge Public Library

Jonathan Jarvie, Information Services Librarian, Lethbridge Public Library

While ordering books to add to the Library’s collections is one of the most fun aspects of being a librarian, it is also one of the hardest. How do you decide which books to purchase? Is one book more worthy than another? Careful consideration has to be paid to each choice, ensuring that the books chosen represent the people (and their interests) of our community. Here are some of the latest books to be added to our fiction collection; descriptions provided by the publisher:

From Peasant Food to Modern Day Pizza

Andrea Bourque-White, Library Assistant, Lethbridge Public Library

People have been eating versions of pizza for centuries. What we know as pizza can be traced back to late 18th century Naples, Italy, but it wasn’t a family favourite like it is today. So, how did pizza become one of the world’s most popular foods?

In Conversation with Shari Lapena

As the days get shorter and colder what better way to spend an evening than checking out the Lethbridge Public Library’s The Word On The Street Fall Reading Series? Thursday, December 10, marks the final speaker in our series. While the month of November was devoted to non-fiction, for our final event we once turn once again to fiction, and to the genre of domestic thrillers, in particular. The Library is thrilled to announce that we will be hosting Shari Lapena, author of The End of Her, in an online interview.

In Conversation with Desmond Cole

As the days get shorter and colder what better way to spend an evening than checking out the Lethbridge Public Library’s The Word On The Street Fall Reading Series? Our first speaker in November was Jeff Rubin, former Chief Economist and Chief Strategist at CIBC World Markets. Our next author interview, planned for November 26, is Desmond Cole who will be speaking about his book, “The Skin We’re In: A Year of Black Resistance and Power”. Cole is an award-winning journalist, radio host, and activist in Toronto.

A Conversation with Jeff Rubin

This September saw Lethbridge Public Library’s annual literary festival, The Word On The Street, move to an online format, and with that change we were able to extend the event well into the fall with The Word On The Street’s Fall Reading Series. Throughout the fall we’re able to host a number of well-known authors including Jeff Rubin, Desmond Cole, and Shari Lapena. On November 12, Lethbridge Public Library will be hosting the third author in our series, Jeff Rubin.

~*So Dark the Con of Man*~

One of my favourite things about reading is that it takes you away to a place you have never been. You are presented with such imagery that allows for you to enter the world that the author has created. On the flip side it is equally satisfying to be reading about a place that you have already been. To let the author take you back to a place of your travels, where you know what you are about to see but can now appreciate it in a whole new beauty as it is described to you. You let the words flow over you as you see the place from your memory as clear as day!
