July and August movies

This summer, enjoy the wide world of movies made from books.

All films start at 7:00pm at the Crossings Branch.


Caffeine High

Attention high school students:
We have a book club - and it's just for you!

Our next meeting is August 19th - bring a favourite book to share with the group.  We'll be meeting on the patio at the downtown library.

You can also find us on Facebook for up-to-the-minute book club info.


#WeNeedDiverseBooks

When was the last time you read a book about someone completely different from you? 

Diversity in books is important.  It gives you a chance to see yourself reflected in fiction, and it also allows you to stretch your mind in all directions with "stories that expand rather than limit your reality."

Branch out in your reading, and then share why diversity matters to you on weneeddiversebooks.tumblr.com.


Teen Summer Reading Challenge

This year's challenge: #WeNeedDiverseBooks!
