What would you like to see happening in our library branch?

We are looking for ideas of programs, crafts, seminars, discussions, etc. that we could have here in our library that are geared towards adults and those who have celebrated their 29th Birthday more than anyone can ever think is actually plausible... If you have something interesting to share with your neighbours and fellow Falklandites stop by and speak with Diana!  You can also send me an email at: falkland@orl.bc.ca if you think of something really great at 3am!

Some programs that we have had over the past year include:

-several sessions of Ukrainian Egg Making

-LEGOmania! programs for kids

-Notary public visit by Debra Burden (office is located in Vernon BC)

-Book collecting discussion presented by Bernie Spring of Antiquarius Booksellers

...if you have ideas for other programs we might arrange, or would like to see a repeat of any of the above programs please let Diana know!


 

Book Club: Hittin' the books again...

The Falkland Branch Book Club is once again getting started! The title we are currently reading is: The Curve of Time by M. Wylie Blanchet. Copies are now available at the branch- please speak with Diana. The next meeting will be held on Wednesday May 25th at 7:30pm inside the library. Coffee, Tea, and cookies will be provided…so please bring your enthusiasm, your thoughts on this title, and if you have some ideas of other titles we might read- bring those too!

This is an “open” group so anyone and everyone living in the Falkland area is invited to attend whenever possible. If this meeting won’t work for you, skip it and try next time! Our focus for the group is simply to expose ourselves to some different books and authors that we might never think to select on our own. Lofty and in-depth discussions can occur; but generally we keep our discussions fairly light on the technical, political, and other more “serious” aspects of the books.

If you are interesting in joining our group but have any questions please stop by and speak with Diana. You can also send her an email at: falkland@orl.bc.ca

Hope to see you at the next meeting!

 

Our previous selections:

The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt.

The Ghost Field by Elly Griffith.

Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood

Little Bee by Chris Cleave
